About the Holiday

Billed as "a totally rad celebration of free speech and fair use", National Barbie-in-a-Blender Day was created by, an international chapter-based student organization that "promotes the public interest in intellectual property and information & communications technology policy." It seems the creative license of Utah artist, Tom Forsythe, was threatened when his 2004 photograph of a Barbie in a blender was not appreciated by the Mattel Corporation. A lawsuit was filed by Mattel against Forsythe, but the corporation ultimately lost the suit because the judge in the case ruled that it ran counter to the first amendment.
