Super Duper Attacked

Recently Mattel Toy Company sued Super Duper because they used the word "say" and "and say" in some of their products. Mattel felt that people would become confused with Super Duper products and that Super Duper was riding on Mattel's "coat tail" to get profits.

Outrageously, Super Duper has been order to pay $3.6 million dollars to Mattel and destroy half million dollars worth of product. This isn't exactly a large company.

If you are a speech therapist then you know the wonderful therapy products that Super Duper puts out. Therapy products, not toys. Well, I found a website entitled Speak Up for Say that gives a list of things that you can do to support Super Duper. I have to say, I love Super Duper products and I use them everyday! I think Mattel's arguments are unfounded. They're just plain greedy. Its ridiculous. Anyway, I just thought this was important enough to write something real quick.
