CA Supreme Court rules against EBC!

From Slashdot, it says that the Canadian SC has ruled that Mega Blocks can continue to sell their blocks in Canada.

EBC: Thick as a brick.

So how do you feel about this decision, Jon? Are you glad that the Canadian Supreme Court said ixnay on the monopoly? Or, do you think that the judges are thick as a brick (pun intended) for not allowing Lego to enjoy a rather ridiculous monopoly?

I say that the decision is a victory for consumers and for free enterprise. Long live healthy competition!

Silly Lego, "look & feel" litigation didn't work for Apple, why would you think that it would work for you?

The patents are expired, they

The patents are expired, they didn't even come up with the "bumps on a brick" idea, and they tried to make it all a trademark claim on a "mechanical feature"? I'm pretty darn happy they lost.

I concur...

I'm glad they lost too. I'm a big proponent of competition. I love's the competition...

Although, I'll have to plead ignorance on this one. I didn't even know that toy blocks were before the Supreme Court.
