Imperial, California - For all you cat lovers: cat commercial icon, Grumpy Cat, was not just grumpy, she was downright livid about an advertiser’s unauthorized use of her image. And so she, and her owners, sued and won her case, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. She received a $700,000 judgment in a U.S. District Court in California against a company that used the famous feisty feline’s image in ads without permission. 

The complaint filed with the court read, in part: “Ironically, while the world-famous feline Grumpy Cat and her valuable brand are most often invoked in a tongue-and-cheek fashion, Defendants’ despicable misconduct here has actually given Grumpy Cat and her owners something to be grumpy about.”
