Academy sues over unofficial Oscars goody bag


The organisers of the Oscars are suing a company over gift bags that they say have been falsely linked with the Academy Awards.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is suing for trademark infringement and damage to the Academy's reputation.

The legal action claims that press about the bags by Distinctive Assets have implied they are official and have focused on "the less-than-wholesome nature of some of the products contained in the bags".

The Academy does not give out goody bags.
