_me2_ Big Inc

LEGO Systems A/S did a George Lucas today and used the power of the DMCA to take down the creative work from quite a few of our friends on Red Bubble. @smokebelch2 @dannyboyh and @bricksailboat to just name a few. If your work has also been taken down by LEGO with no clear reason then there was some LEGO in your photo, then please join us in posting your legal notice and tag it to #legodoesalucasltd more details can be found on our blog www.stuckinplastic.com or over at @xxsjc feed ! Do spread the word ...

  •   e_nichole I can't believe they did such a thing, sucks to have that happen 1w
  •   herrk Great shot, sad news. 1w
  •   _me2_ Aye. I am all for protecting your own IP and making sure we have fair trade and play and don't harm the LEGO brand, but the current latest approach seems to be without focus and just generic. What triggered for me the reason to speak up was the anecdote of @bricksailboat who's pirates laying in the pool (an old serie owned by LEGO) was removed as an intellectual property's infringement. @baron_von_baron 1w
  •   _me2_ Maggie, it is not just about the selling for me but about fair use and one could argue that LEGO legal department is violating their own fair play policy. LEGO is clear that no one should claim to impersonate their brand, and is very clear on using the word LEGO or their LOGO in e.g. usernames, websites, and so on to not create confusion, yet at the same time they nowhere state that the usage of their own product as part of an artistic composition makes the art work owned by them. And this is exactly what seems to be happening. A scene of a few old pirates floating in a pool is subject to be removed, because LEGO claims the ownership of the photo. This means that by shooting plastic, we are merely documenting the IP of LEGO and LEGO owns all rights on everything you can IMAGINE to build and share. You are not selling on RedBubble the right to use the image, you are selling a postcard, print or even T-Shirt of your art work, your visual creation, which used LEGO as a creative component in the work of art created by the artist. And it goes beyond the sales of a postcard at Red Bubble. Here at IG we have kind of granted the right to IG they can use our public images in a commercial way and also Flickr did a stint a while back with selling CC images. So at one hand LEGO could use all the #lego images here to their commercial advantage, at the other hand they can try to file the exact same #DMCA act on IG and Flickr and both companies would most probably comply and delete your images with all its history and comments and social interaction in a glitch. So this could be a storm in a glass of water or actually become much more ugly. Really curious what the overall #afol community will have to say. Now, like @xxsjc said, let's not be cowered into a corner, it is all of us who have contributed to the success of Big Brick in our own little small ways, so let's flood our social media outlets, office walls and bedrooms with our own creative photography based on soup cans and bricks alike. @maggiegem 1w
  •   _me2_ Hmm. That was a relative long post of me just one above, so I kindly share it with you as well @herrk @e_nichole @darrencroft 1w
  •   smokebelch2 @_me2_ Yep! Absolutely agree! That is my overriding concern as well- where would this end!? 1w
  •   herrk Aye. Am very curious as well. Btw: Have they taken art off RB randomly? I still found some gems today. 1w
  •   amicroworld Really awesome shot. Its ridiculous the thing they re doing! 1w

_me2_ Beverly

Lots of glamour and glitter between Beverly Hills and Hollywood Boulevard where even the original Apollo Crew got a few stars. This one is a quickie from Beverly Hills Party we attended last night. The awesome after party is a recurring event in LA happening every single day at 21:00 I am told ...

_me2_ Venice

Today was a most wet day here in the City of Angels and the Crew got completely soaking wet in their search for a sunset in the Pacific. On a complete side note @xxsjc is sharing her crush with Nick Cave on our blog at www.stuckinplastic.com and if it has been a while since you passed by now is a good time to catch up.

_me2_ Elevator

We bumped into Buzz in the elevator up to the Death Star and could not resist in taking this quick shot of the Man behind Infinity. On a side note we have our very first post of the year up over at stuckinplastic and you will not believe it but it is not a post by @xxsjc or @avanaut but by yours truly. Feel free to pass by and leave your view in the comments.

  •   pinar.of.brickland That paradox you have there makes me question - is it possible to have something belong to you and share it with another? Without sharing it with another.. Kinda confusing... 4w
  •   dean80s 4w
  •   _me2_ I ️ paradoxes. They make for great food thoughts. Now your question made me think directly of the secret formula of Coke which is shared with billions yet only known to a few. @pinar.of.brickland 4w
  •   _me2_ @dean80s 4w
  •   pinar.of.brickland Paradoxes confuse me :) But that's interesting about the coke formula. Never thought about that before. Still, my question continues to play around in my head, looking for an answer. I doubt it will be easy to find one though... 4w

  •   _me2_ @herrk emoji can be tricky same as autocorrect 1mon
  •   _me2_ Aye, I am very pleased with it and agree with you @darrencroft 1mon
  •   _me2_ @nick_wlz 1mon
  •   dornyika Thanks guys! It was a scientific calculation @_me2_ not a guess, though! 1mon
  •   _me2_ Ahh. You used the powers of the female scientists LEGO set to calculate the bricks. So cool @dornyika 1mon
  •   herrk Using emojis while switching between an iPhone and a Lumia can be risky like choosing the red or the blue wire. Guessing I'm in need of a male scientist's set. Oh wait, I've got the mad professor and Frank right here! Maybe that's the problem 1mon
