Is it because these are based on old devices ??

Hello,
I was wondering what the boundaries and issues are regarding building clones and DIY projects for sale that are based on old modules that were once available commercially. I'm thinking of the many buchla / moog DIY projects for sale that you see on this forum and even, in a more extreme example, the new arp2600 clone coming out. 
Is it because these are based on old devices that are perhaps out of copyright that it is allowed/not an issue? 
I only ask as I know moog once challenged arp (and roland?) for having a filter too similar to there's so wonder why this is no longer an issue. 
Please help. 
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
