M.I.C. (Made in China) Gadget, the company behind the “Zuckerdoll” action figure, has ceased Zuckerdoll sales following a legal letter from Facebook’s legal counsel in China.
According to the letter, by selling the figurines on a website, the company used Zuckerberg’s portraiture “for commercial purpose and infringed his legitimate right.”
Facebook’s trademark “F” was also used on the action figures, which has also infringed Facebook’s trademark right.
M.I.C. issued an apology and said they will comply.
