Black Eyed Peas’ BMG Rights Sues MGA Toymakers For Profiting Off “My Humps”

BMG Rights Management, the music publishing company for the Black Eyed Peas, is suing toy manufacturer MGA Entertainment for marketing a parody of their 2005 Grammy-winning smash hit “My Humps.” The toymakers behind the Bratz dolls marketed their latest product–glitter-pooping unicorns called Poopsie Slime Surprise– by making a track entitled “My Poops.”

BMG, who owns 75% of the copyright for the original track, alleges that “My Poops” is similar in melody, chords, and lyrics. They initially sent a cease-and-desist to MGA, which was reportedly ignored. 

The music publishing company has since issued the renowned toymakers a lawsuit for $10 million.

Before the lawsuit levied by Black Eyed Peas’ BMG, MGA was sued by ATL rapper T.I. and his wife Tiny. The married hip-hop couple sued the toy company for mimicking the style of OMG Girlz with their L.O.L Surprise and OMG dolls as they have a similar image, trade dress, and name.
