Doll brand around through 2009

A popular brand of dolls will be allowed to stay on the market - at least for another year. A new court ruling allows the company that makes Bratz dolls to continue selling the toys through 2009.

Then it will be forced to turn over its Bratz empire to Mattel.

Mattel won the rights to the franchise last year in a lawsuit claiming that a former employee created the Bratz line while working for Mattel.
