"Luxo Jr." is the hopping desk lamp that has been the mascot for Pixar since 1986. John Lasseter used his own Luxo desk lamp as a model for a short computer-animated movie, which was later nominated for an Academy Award.

Luxo, a Norwegian lamp maker, filed a federal lawsuit against Pixar and Disney saying their use of the name Luxo is infringing on the company's copyright. Disney-Pixar is including a limited edition "Luxo Jr." lamp along with Blue-ray discs of "Up." Luxo is also upset about the six-foot animatronic Luxo Jr. attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

According to an article in the Los Angeles Times, "Oslo-based Luxo said in the complaint that the Luxo name hadn't been used on Pixar and Disney products until now and that sale of the Pixar lamps would cause devastating damage to Luxo and dilute the goodwill which Luxo has built up."

uhm... why'd it take them so long to complain and sue? and how is disney in anyway a bad thing for luxo? wouldn't their use of luxo be something that increased the sales of this specific lamp? i dont know

Okay yeah, that's pretty much what I heard in the /Filmcast. I can't imagine it's true, Disney has tons of lawyers who check this stuff out. This will probably be settled soon I imagine.

Nope, if anything happens I bet Disney just takes the Up special edition set with the Luxo lamp off the market. So uh, if you want something worth some money in five years, I'd pre-order that haha.
