(Newser) – Lady Gaga has won a fierce court battle against ... a children's website. Moshi Monsters, which apparently allows kids to "adopt your own pet monster," has a character named Lady Goo Goo that just so happens to be a singer. The site planned to release a single by the character—"The Moshi Dance"—after it became a YouTube sensation. Gaga took the creators to court, where a UK judge sided with her and banned the site from releasing any Lady Goo Goo songs, the Telegraph reports.

Gaga's lawyers claimed children might not know the difference between Lady Gaga and Lady Goo Goo, while the creator noted that it's "pretty obvious kids will be able to tell the difference." (One is a cartoon character that sucks on a pacifier; the other is a human pop star who sometimes rides in an egg.) The creator continues, "We would have thought that Lady Gaga could have seen the humor behind this parody." Other Moshi Monsters include Dusbtin Beaver, 49 Pence, and Broccoli Spears.
