It comes after the Black Eyed Peas’ song My Humps found itself at the center of a lawsuit over allegations that a toy maker ripped off the song.
Music publisher BMG Rights Management is suing toy maker MGA Entertainment for allegedly making a parody of a hit song.
The focus is on the music video, which features animated dancing unicorn dolls that secrete sparkling slime as part of the promotion of the Poopsie Slime Surprise toy line.
The plaintiffs, BMG, claim that My Poops is a copycat of My Humps’ melody, tempo, chord progression and even features a female vocalist who sounds a lot like Fergie, who performed most of the memorable parts on the original, according to Reuters.
BMG, which claims to own 75 percent of the copyright to My Humps, claims the toy line has made MGA Entertainment tens of millions of dollars in profits, largely due to a promotional video featuring My Poops that was released without its permission.
The publishing house is asking the court to compensate for damages of at least 10 million dollars.
My Humps became a huge hit for the Black Eyed Peas, peaking at number three on the Hot 100 in November 2005 and eventually winning Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal at the 49th Annual Awards. Grammy”.

The first sign of possible copyright infringement comes in a verse where a woman sings in My Poops: “What are you gonna do with all this poo – all this poo – whoop whoop – I’ll poop, poop, poop, oh yeah – get dandruff from my poop.’
It sounds very similar to a Black Eyed Peas verse in sound, phrasing and delivery.
What are you going to do with all that junk – all that junk in your trunk? – I’ma get, get, get, get you drunk – Get you love drinking off my hump, – sing Will.i.am and Fergie in My Humps.
According to the complaint, MGA ignored BMG’s cease-and-desist notices. MGA Entertainment was the company behind the Bratz line of dolls.
