Ai Weiwei: Lego U-turn 'victory for freedom of speech'

Chinese artist Ai Weiwei tells the BBC he is "happy" about Lego's decision not to ask bulk customers what they want to do with the bricks.

In October last year, Ai accused Lego of censorship when it refused to sell its bricks directly to him.

The company said its policy was to reject requests if it believed the bricks would be used to make a political statement.

Describing Lego's action as a 'good move' Ai told the BBC his thoughts on the decision.
