I *do* this, though: You can make a "clone" of Tetris, but you can *not* call it anything that starts with "tet" or includes "tris" in the name (especially at the end). The lawyers with cease-and-desist orders *will* find you.

Tetris Company even went as far as the threaten people for "look and feel" copyright of falling blocks, which is totally BS. Just stay away from the name and ''tris''.

Tetris is TM and Copyright 1987 Elorg. Original concept, design and program by Alexey Pazhitnov.
(this is from the copyright screen on the original Gameboy Tetris game, copyright is probably way outdated by this time, but an interesting fact nonetheless)
