The ads in question are the "Really?" ads, "Bedroom Really" and "Bathroom Really."
Says the suit:
The Microsoft Commercials copy both the sequence of events and the character interplay found in the Cellrderm Commercials. The Microsoft Commercials also copy other copyrightable expression, including but not limited to clothing, gestures, character appearance, camera angles, and other visual elements from the Cellrderm Commercials.
Added in the suit is Microsoft's marketing firm, Crispin Porter + Bogusky.
Cellrderm is looking for an injunction, and a part of the profits derived from the ads.
Judge for yourself:
