Lego Builds Its Copyright Case in Chinese Courts
Danish toy giant Lego Group has won a court ruling against a group of local imitators of its classic children’s building blocks, the second such victory in the past year as China steps up its efforts to protect intellectual property.
A judge in South China’s Guangdong province ruled that four companies that produced and sold similar products under the “Lepin” name were guilty of various counts of copyright infringement and unfair competition, Lego announced in a Monday message on its microblog. Lego accused the defendants of illegally copying 18 of its classic toy bricks, as well as a number of its miniature people.
