Ruling Maintains Manhattan Toy’s Exclusive Rights to Automoblox

A recent arbitration ruling has reaffirmed Manhattan Toy’s licensing rights to Automoblox, LLC. Manhattan Toy has been the exclusive licensee and distributor for the Automoblox line of modular wooden vehicles in Europe since January 2008 and worldwide since January 2009.

In late 2010, Automoblox, LLC disputed Manhattan Toy’s rights under the agreement. An arbitrator has recently settled the dispute in Manhattan Toy’s favor, ruling that the license agreement between the companies is still effective, and that Manhattan Toy continues to have the exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute the line worldwide.
