At the bottom of Bricklink.com appears the following statement:
- LEGO® is a trademark of the LEGO Group of companies which does not sponsor, authorize, or endorse this site.
However, according to this press release from 2019 TLG is in the process of acquiring Bricklink.
Has this acquisition gone through? Is the Lego Group the owner of Bricklink? What does this mean for Bricklink and for independent marketplaces in general?
