It was reported yesterday that construction toy manufacturer Mega Brands has lodged a federal antitrust complaint against its competitor Lego in order to “stop Lego’s illegal efforts to monopolize the construction toy market through illegal anti-competitive practices including, but not limited to, use of fraudulently obtained IP [intellectual property] rights to interfere with Mega Brands’ right to continue to import certain competitive products [cylindrical studs] into the United States.

More information is available here. The original complaint is available here.

PS. The picture above is supposed to be one of a Lego Courtroom, although I´m a bit confused by the cook handing a pizza to one of the strangely-dressed members or the Jury…
