Pixar Settles Luxo Jr Dispute

Two decades ago, Pixar’s John Lasseter created an animated short, called “Luxo Jr,” based on his Luxo desk lamp. The short went on to get an Oscar nomination and the lamp has become an iconic mascot for the studio.

Then two months ago, Disney/Pixar decided to package a limited-edition “Luxo Jr” lamp with the Blu-ray version of “Up.” The Norwegian lamp manufacturer Luxa AS wasn’t happy that Disney got into the business of selling their lamps and filed a lawsuit against the studio for trademark infringement.

Now we has learned that the parties have reached an amicable settlement and the lawsuit has been withdrawn. Disney will stop selling lamps and Luxo AS will continue letting Pixar use the character.
