Angry over "Angry Birds"
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON- An artist who designed a line of toys for pets called "Angry Birds" sued the company that sold them because she claims she got cheated out of millions.
Juli Adams says she reached a deal with a company in Finland that makes the popular video game with the same name.
Adams designed her toy line for The Hartz Mountain Corporation in 2006. The video game came out in 2009.
She claims the game-maker, Rovio Entertainment, wanted to market the toys for pets based on the game, but couldn't because Adams had the U.S. trademark.
She claims Hartz went behind her back and persuaded Rovio to grant exclusive rights to sell the pet toys.
