Schwarzenegger Sues Bobblehead Maker
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is suing an Ohio bobblehead company alleging it unlawfully hijacked the former Hollywood actor´s image for a toy plastic doll.
The Los Angeles County Superior Court lawsuit says the governor´s image holder, Oak Productions, “does not permit Schwarzenegger´s name, photograph, likeness or voice to be used on commercial products,” unless authorized.
The lawsuit was filed Friday but served on the doll´s makers Tuesday.
The makers of the bobbleheads — Ohio Discount Merchandise — contend the governor is a public political figure and therefore can no longer control his image.
