The Norwegian company Luxo are suing Disney over the use of the Luxo name in their products and theme parks. From what I can see so far, cited int he lawsuit are both the special edition of the Blu Ray version of Up, which comes with a minature Luxo Jr. (see this thread), as well as the animatronic Luxo Jr. that's in Pixar Place at DHS.

I'm sorry but they are a little late. If they wewre going to file a suit, they should have filed it with Pixar all the years back. I expect this to fall through.

Exactly. Pixar has been using the name Luxo since it's inception (Luxo was the name of the character from it's first film)

C'mon. Clearly the character and logo have been hidden from them all this time.
