Turns out the Rubik's people are sticklers for copyright violations. http://www.rubiks.com/Image%20Rights.aspx

My birthmonth, June 1982: the first Rubik's Cube World Championships. Which is kind of ironic because I cannot solve a Rubik's Cube to save my life... it's always close, but not quite right. Grawr.

I'm born in 1982 also, and had a Rubik's Cube entry ready to go, but I was informed that the Rubik's Cube is copywrited. The wording is really strong too

"The RUBIK'S CUBE® in its three dimensional form and any graphic or photographic representation of it, in any configuration, coloured or uncoloured, whether it carries the RUBIK'S CUBE® name or logo, is protected by intellectual property laws throughout the world."
