Julia Child group in legal battle with oven-maker

BOSTON -- A foundation set up by Julia Child is locked in a legal battle with the manufacturer of Thermador ovens over a marketing campaign that celebrates the late chef's use of its high-end appliances.
The foundation claims the company is using Child's name and image without permission.
BSH Home Appliances Corp., the California-based manufacturer, says it is simply making a factual reference to her use of its appliances. Child had a Thermador oven in her Cambridge kitchen, which is now displayed at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington.
BSH has filed a lawsuit in Boston against the foundation, asking a federal judge to determine the rights of both sides.
Child died in 2004.
