    Default C6 lawsuit! Hanna Barbera initiates lawsuit against GM for copyright infringement.

    July 8th - Burbank, CA - Hanna Barbera, after reading the latest edition of Road & Track, initiates a copyright infringement lawsuit, describing GM's blatant disregard of their existing use of said image as insulting.

    Hanna Barbera also mentioned that they may add a defamation of character (which they will be calling the "Rosie initiative") attachment to the lawsuit if GM doesn't initiate an immediate withdrawal of this legally protected image!

    Here's the original R&T photograph/image:

    ...and here's the existing copyrighted image:

    After further analysis by technical experts, using digital colorization techniques, further reports have added significant credibility to the exiting case as the shape of the seatback actually emulates Rosie's ever popular maids hat.

    GM denies all claims as they defend their design as having a clear "double circle eye" effect versus Rosie's single robotic eyes.

    ..but a previous employee of GM, under agreement of immunity from prosecution, came up with this alternate design photo that were considered before the current design was selected:
