I think it depends a lot on where you live. In Sweden a Rubik's 3x3 costs 140 SEK at one of the more popular and widely available places that sells them. That's about 20$Slightly off topic but, since when did Rubik's brand 3x3s cost $17? They're never over $10 at my local stores.
And what would this actually achieve?Perhaps on the WCA website under rankings, the event "Rubik's Cube" should be changed to simply "3x3 Cube".
What do you mean, "now"? Are they doing anything now that they haven't consistently been doing for a long long time?I just don't see why they have to do this now
The ****?!after soo many years of dormancy?
It's cylindrical, not spherical (at least in *the* Rubik's cube, their 3x3x3).In a Rubik's cube the genius was in the spherical mechanism in a square cube.
I've seen a case where someone ordered a 2x2, a 3x3 and a 3x3x2 and got threatened with legal action if they don't practically immediately agree to their destruction.They don't stop small shipments of cubes that you order through the post from China
Or... Seven Towns requested it, and Zazzle just doesn't want to take the risk.my guess is that Seven Towns requested it, and Zazzle had to obey the law.
Oh, it'll happen again (and again and again). Unless someone convinces Seven Towns to be reasonable, of course.TL;DR: Drop it, It's probably not going to happen again.
It was taken down because of copyright infringement? Unless you had an image of the cube there, that doesn't make sense. You can't copyright a word.The trademark Rubik's is definitely still valid. I put up a T-Shirt design on Zazzle, and just because it contained the word Rubik's in the description, it was taken down because of copyright infringement. And Zazzle allows a lot of stuff, so my guess is that Seven Towns requested it, and Zazzle had to obey the law.
You can copyright a lot of things: Logos, melodies, slogans. Bikram yoga even copyrighted their sequence of yoga poses.It was taken down because of copyright infringement? Unless you had an image of the cube there, that doesn't make sense. You can't copyright a word.
I think it is as easy as "V-Cubes don't mention Rubik's and they have a black face"I'm just curious on how the V-brand gets along with this so easily. Hell, they aren't trying to make speedcubes. They are trying to take over the brand and name of Rubiks cubes.
And THEORETICALLY if they gave a **** about the so called copyright infringements, would it only apply to the cubes that Rubiks has made, aka 3x3 to 5x5? 3x3 to 5x5 DIY I can manage, but I dont want any bigger wants to be sent in pieces unless I especially ask for it ,_,
