Fleischer Studios News (Official):
It seems that Helen accused Betty of stealing her stuff but the Judge decided that Helen has nothing on Betty Boop.
That was victory number one for Betty. Later on, some manufacturers thought it would be a good idea to make Betty Boop dolls without asking permission. They were hailed to court and the manufacturers were prevented from going ahead.
Victory number two for Betty.
The manufacturers took their case to the Court of Appealsand this court last Monday said in legal terms, Lay Off! It is important news because the courts are definitely deciding that Betty Boop can not be copied. This means that Fleischer Studios has the only feminine cartoon star in the world.
