Boing Boing: Legos site treats visitors to lecutre on correct trademark use

Boing Boing: Legos site treats visitors to lecutre on correct trademark use

Oh, Cory, really.

It's just you American types that refer to Lego Bricks in that funny plural form.

To the rest of us, it's always sounded dumb... :-)

Yup, "Legos" is a curiously US idiom, and Lego is not a US company. While I sympathise with Cory's cognitive dissonance in that the people around him call it "Legos", I can't blame Lego for wanting to make their point here. It's much like when people get other people's names wrong... very annoying - if it happens to be your name that they're getting wrong. :)

Don't let C hear you call him American - he's canadian :)

Canadians - pfaugh. Nothing but Americans who cut a deal with the DA.

Cory, sorry. I meant no slur on your good self. Appart, obviously, from the getting the word wrong thing.

And anyway, aren't Canadians just Americans with a sense of irony and better manners?
