Lego changes policy
COPENHAGEN: Toymaker Lego will no longer ask what its bricks will be used for when making bulk sales, the company said, after facing criticism for refusing to sell to controversial Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. The Danish company found itself at the centre of a social media storm last year after Ai said it had refused his order of the famous children’s building blocks as they would be ‘used for political works’. Ai said he was ‘flabbergasted’ by the decision. But the world’s second-largest toymaker made a U-turn on Tuesday, saying that from this month it would no longer ask for the reasons behind large sales to avoid any ‘misunderstandings’.
