On October 22, 2008 President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, sued the company K&B for putting his face on a voodoo doll without his permission. There was a voodoo doll of his opponent in the election as well, but she wasn't mad about it. In fact, she thinks that Sarkozy doesn't have a sense of humor at all.
Is his opponent for president from last year offending him by saying "I have a sense of humor"? What do you think Sarkozy should do? Is he doing something wrong by suing the company? Or is he doing the right thing by defending his own image?
There are always two sides to a story. Even if you you think they're doing the wrong thing. Kind of like an election.
The first side to every story is a good side. I think Sarkozy is doing the right thing by defending himself against humiliation. Also, he is doing the right thing because he should have control over his own image. If you had your image put on a doll without permission how would you feel?
The other side of the story is the wrong side. I think Sarkozy is doing the wrong thing because it is just the company getting more money. Also, he should let it slide and not care. Then he won't end up loosing cases in court. Finally, if you keep fighting back they're just going to keep on coming back stronger.
So what do you think? Is Sarkozy doing the right thing or is he doing the wrong thing by suing this company over a doll. Leave us comments and share your thinking-and join us next time on The Blurb!
