EU court knocks down Lego's efforts to protect its bricks
(Via BBC News)
And I thought it was just the US trademark office that made some stupid decisions!
I can see how the general shape of a brick, with flat sides, could be considered a functional shape but how many bricks are there in real life that happen to have 8 stubs on top that allow or interlocking in the same fashion as a Lego brick?
I hope that this decision does not open the floodgates of Lego clones from China that will eventually lead to the dilution of the Lego brand.
