    Exclamation ATTN: All LEGO-related boxes to be deleted

    Unfortunately, LEGO's lawyers have demanded that the below list of boxes be removed from the site by January 15th, 2009, due to copyright infringement.

    I'm giving this heads-up before they get deleted and as a notice that no LEGO related boxes can ever be posted to this site. I have requested reconsideration, but I would not hold my breath...

    I was very close to making a Lego Super Smash Bros Brawl box once! Well I started it and made some renders but I decided to cancel it to work on my Sonic And The Black Knight box! Thank God I did

    How is that copyright infringement? All we're doing is taking their graphic material and putting together into a boxart. I hardly see the reason in that. However, I really don't think messing with LEGO would be smart.

    'Tis a shame, as we had some good LEGO boxes. Fortunately, I never made one.

    Take your last looks, guys.

    Wow LEGO, way to be a corporate jackass.

    The fake LEGO games I understand but the real ones I don't. LEGO has no claim in the art for those games and therefore can't dictate how they're used.

    I'm boycotting their products.

    that was kinda stupid of LEGO. I mean, it's not like we were doing anything wrong, and some of those boxes were really good.

    Does that mean we can't use any kind of legos on our boxes at all, like my Halo Wars box?

    If Lego is watching over our site, it's best not to insult them in public! They might sue us for abuse and slander

    lol

    I don't know whether I should take this news as a good or bad thing. For one thing, companies are actually taking a look at the site. But when they demand that we take off the boxes, that's certainly not a good news for most of us here.

    But really, this kinda reminds me of that whole issue with copyright infringement in LittleBigPlanet. There are certain companies out there that see that their ip's are gaining positive attention and have even asked Media Molecule to white list them, saying they won't ever ask to have those levels removed. I'm just hoping the same thing happens should this site become more popular in the future.

    Oh btw, Reed, once you take the boxes down from the main site...will you still have copies of those boxes in case the artists forgot to save them and no longer have those boxarts in their computers?

    Wow, I hope developers don't start following in Lego's footsteps.

    Also, MARKER's Lego Batman box has to be removed? :<

    LEGO, if you're reading this, I haven't been challenged by one of your products in years.

    Quit with the idiot-proofing and make a LEGO set that isn't meant for a six year old. You're a big enough company that you can devote 5% of your product catalog to my age group. Seriously, what was up with your Star Destroyer? 1,000 pieces? I ate that for breakfast. Give me a 10 or 15k behemoth that I need Costco to bring out through the loading bay. And knock the prices down. I paid over two hundred dollars for that Star Destroyer and I finished it the day I got it.
