Miis vs. Meez vs. WeeMees: most disturbing conflict ever

A whole lot of people want to get a piece of the lucrative "bobble-headed cartoonish humanlike thing with a totally emasculating name" industry. Clickable Culture brings us the saga of Miis, WeeMees, and Meez, three almost-identical takes on almost-identical things with almost-identical names. Back in November, WeeWorld even sued Nintendo over their Miis, but has unsuccessfully tried to bail on the suit when it looked like Nintendo would win. Can't we/Wii/WeeMee/Meez all just get along?

More importantly, why would anyone want to create a WeeMee -- which begins life as a creepy, hairless alien with a "fig leaf" covering its crotch?
