Is the Free Software Foundation next? Emacs includes you-know-what, and Mr. Pajitnov has in the past claimed that "free software should never have existed" because it "destroys the market".

Anyway, when I read the opinion (I am not a lawyer), the wording appeared to imply that Tetris Holding's strongest copyright claim is to the set of seven Tetriminos. So here's a workaround:
  • Add small pieces
  • Add pentominoes
  • Remove all pieces that don't fit in 3x3 box (I4, I5, N, Y) or that contain O (O, P)

The result is the piece set shown below, which comes closer to that of Rampart.
