Rabbit Sued by Cats for ‘Copycatting’
A group of cats has filed suit against a local bunny named Pam for what they say is an unauthorized use of intellectual property.
At issue is a picture Pam posted on her Instagram page with depicts her sitting in a cardboard box. The feline group claims that cats own a copyright for what they’re saying is a “unique piece of performance art.”
"Sitting in boxes has always been the domain of cats,” said feline legal team member Larry Watterson, Esq. “We contend that by sitting in that box, and posing for that photo, without paying any licensing fees to my clients, Pam is in breach of copyright laws. We’re seeking punitive damages in the amount of $150,000.”
The case is scheduled to go to court next month.
