    I saw a picture of it in another thread here recently and was wondering to myself if that was the one you were referring to as I was reading this.

    Hopefully, the guy caught wind of this and is shitting his pants.
    Probably would be best to leave political stuff off of Ryans' thread.

    You are in good company......
    along with such counterfeitees as Disney, Rolex, Nike and on-line Viagra. You have arrived at the top when you have become worthy of imitation. I doubt the dirtbag is getting rich off your design. He's just a pebble in your shoe: shake 'em out and walk tall. Everybody in the room knows you're the real deal and where to buy the real goods.

    Not intending to record a conversation. Just a quick rolling video of all the illegal wares on the sellers swap meet table as you walk by so you can rewind it later to see what his offerings are and write them down.
    At any rate, the reporting HAMBer is all over it. Good on him!

    I’m pretty sure I know who it is, he had a stall at Bendigo swap selling a lot of repop stickers, didn’t see the HAMB one but didn’t look too hard. He was doing a roaring trade and at $5 each must of done pretty well. I’ll bet he’ll be at the Ballarat swap, will look and get his details there.

    reminds me of the missouri/kansas thing. if you've seen "outlaw josey wales," you'll know what i mean. but michigan and ohio have a similar rivalry going on that was over a small strip of land...

    Now he may have done that as well. I do recall seeing some Harley stickers. This fellow when I get his details may find himself in more trouble than he ever considered. I was simply pissed to see Ryan's HAMB logo on something that had been copied.

    HD defends their logo as well as anyone if not better. If he is infringing on the Harley logo they will be all over him like stink on sh*t.

    There is a guy that sets up at the bigger swaps that sells a heap of stickers that look clearly like they have been taken off the net. Saw him at Greasefest in Melbourne, historic races in Winton and at Bendigo. Didn't see any H.A.M.B. stickers last town I saw him set up. Has the usual Bonneville speed week and old speed shop/branded stickers.

    I'll keep my eye out for him. Here's some of his wares. You can see the quality is clearly cut and pasted and printed.[​IMG]

    dosnt surprise me at all.
    im sure all of us have saved something from the net we never asked permission for.

    These days if you upload something to the internet you got to kinda expect that it might be downloaded/saved/printed/stolen.
    How many guys here have either there selves or have family members who have saved a song from youtube?downloaded a movie, book or other media? saved an image from the net to use even as a desktop wallpapper? heck how about downloaded then viewed or printed off an old car manual or marketing material?

    I dont agree with it but hey i guess im guilty of it all. Admittedly I haven't then redistributed it or sold it.... but still

    There is of course a huge debate going about the justifiability of intellectual property as such. I've got a view on it, but I don't think here is the place to elaborate. Suffice it to say that if you want a system to change it should change throughout, or else people operating at Ryan's scale get burned while Disney, H-D, Coca-Cola, etc. aren't touched.

  25. Which for the most part isn't illegal or a cause for concern.

    Where you start treading on thin ice is when you claim someone else's work as your own, use someone else's work commercially or profit financially from their work without their permission.

    Copyright and trademark laws are fairly complicated, but downloading and even printing most things from the net (for non-commercial purposes) isn't likely to cause you any grief.

    Here's a link to the basics of how things like Public Domain and Copyright laws work. And in some cases how they don't work.

    There's always that fair use issue.
     
  27. Taking someone else's work, reproducing it and selling it for profit is not fair use.

    Copyright law is actually pretty easy to understand. If you didn't create it or pay to have it created and if you don't have an agreement with the originator, it's not yours. Hands off. Ignorance of the law does not make the perpetrator exempt from it.

    Ned, my comment was regarding the political comments. Pretty sure we all agree that the guy overstepped his bounds.
