BTTF has a chance but I don't know if TLG is going to spend megabucks on a license for one small set. With the 30th Anniversary for BTTF coming up in 2015 and constant rumors of a film remake I think they might wait a few years and do a whole line.
If people wanted it, they could make it from their own collection or bricklink it.
Lego (the company) is not needed.
Once Lego turn it down they'd find it almost impossible to prevent the original poster to do whatever they want with the design. Not only would it probably have no legal standing the PR of going after a fan would be horrendous. The only time when they might bother would be if you took the design to a competitor brand and they took it on.

I am amazed by the response to the DeLorean - the BTTF films were enjoyable but I had no idea they still had such a cult following! That said, the Cuusoo set is good because it's pretty original (aside from the obvious BTTF licence) and small so it could get a nice price point - will be interested to see what happens there.
Not too sad about the WInchester - it was a nice model but actually the building isn't very inspiring if you take away the figures (clearly the people who owned the real place didn't think so either, it's now been demolished), and was definitely a highly priced, overly niched product - it was cool, but not suited to the desires of Cuusoo.
Ultimately I'd like to only see non-licenced sets on there. It would surely simplify a few things for TLG, and I'd like to think that it would fire people's imagination there a little better rather than just seeing the same Star Wars things again and again (yes, Cavegod's AT-AT is brilliant, and hopefully I'll get to see it at one of the events in the UK sometime, but the practicalities of it being on Cuusoo have already been discussed in circles here).
Indeed, but I don't think that involves selling (instructions or kits). It just means that you don't have to take your MOC off flickr just because it's on Cuusoo.
Im not to sure about the plans I always assumed it was everything. But that you can display your own one if you have built it.
The Minecraft project was different, as the cuusoo project was 'taken over' by the Minecraft creators themselves and they said they'd give the 1% to charity (I believe).
*goes off to vote for Serenity and calm down a bit before Afolcon*
The Legend of Zelda:
Firefly Serenity playset:
Modular Western Town:
Battle of Kashyyyk: (My project)
Please post other projects that you should think should make it to 10,000 supports. (Also sad that the Winchester did not pass the LEGO review.) http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/7451
[EDIT : Merged with existing "Cuusoo Corner" discussion thread]
I'm doing plenty of minifig designs for it.
[EDIT : merged with existing Cuusoo Corner thread]
@deskp you've done some great designs, but I think 'Character' currently hold the licence to Dr Who building block sets (which is a shame).
That Serenity/Firefly ship is hideously ugly (I quite enjoyed the film), but seems to have shot up in votes. Wild West is still slowly climbing though... :s
I know you guys have pushed for that one, hence the reason I am posting this change on Cuusoo, perhaps with that knowledge your site and EuroBricks can get it there before it misses the June review.
