The reason is maybe not what you'd think. Lots of dishonest companies make shitty knockoff copies of the Lego brick, and studies show that as much as 40% of the toy consumer base doesn't realize there's a difference, or is at least confused about it. They unsuspectingly get the shitty bricks instead of the Lego they'd intended to, the bricks don't stick together, they toys don't work the way they're supposed to, and the kids and parents think that Lego's a shitty product and never want to buy it again.
Every time one of these shitty clone brands takes dishonest advantage of the goodwill that Lego's built up over the course of decades, kids that would have wanted to play with Lego are driven out of the construction brick market entirely. Knockoffs aren't just stealing sales from Lego, they're destroying future sales through their shitty product and dishonest marketing.
