well, I expect this will go to appeals, where it may very well get broken. I mean, those muppets look far too much like Jim Henson's and using them for an adult-y movie with that tag line is indeed trashing the 50 years of kid friendly reputation Sesame street has built...

Unbelievable really. Sesame Street owes everything to the Hensons. Suing them over something like this is just about the biggest show of ingratitude I've seen this year.

Watched a news segment on it the other night. It's all for publicity, a win-win. Both sides get shittons of free media exposure. The lawyer who was commenting on it said it would be thrown out, as the movie never used the term "Sesame Street". Appears he was correct.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.
