Keyboard Cat At Middle Of Lawsuit

Fatso is back in court again. Fatso, the keyboard-tickling cat used by Spokane graphic artist Charlie Schmidt in the 1985 video “Keyboard Cat,” is at the center of a recent lawsuit filed by Schmidt against the companies behind a popular video game. Filed in federal court in Los Angeles, the lawsuit says Warner Bros. and Fifth Cell Media used cartoon representations of Fatso without permission in their video game “Scribblenauts.” Schmidt is claiming copyright and trademark infringement/Tom Sowa, SR.
