I'm not an IP attorney but I wonder if using Barbie dolls in stop motion is really a trademark infringement...I would think not. Especially in light of the MCA case, but even more generally...I'm not at all sure that that would be infringing. I have a pretty good understanding of US copyright law, but I guess my trademark knowledge is a little spotty in this area. I'd be interested to hear from anyone who does have an IP law background.
In any case, including a Peaches track would be a non-starter (from a copyright distribution perspective).
