Does anyone know if the term "Minifigure" is copyrighted? - User:Creature114
- From the bottom of LEGOs site:
"LEGO, the LEGO logo, DUPLO, BIONICLE, MINDSTORMS, the BELVILLE, KNIGHTS' KINGDOM and EXO-FORCE logos, the Brick and Knob configurations and the Minifigure are trademarks of the LEGO Group."

Does anyone know if the basic original minifigure design is under copyright and or trademark? I know the basic brick design is out of trademark but it seems copycat sets are also using a similar minifigure design. I also see designs, t-shirts, posters using a minifigure type figure that are for sale in various places. Eg http://blog.glennz.com/evolution/

just to clarify, the terms are never copyrighted. The logos and the actual pieces are.12:39, May 17, 2012 (UTC)
