Hunh? and your point is......?Well, Well Well...
To copy or recast somebody´s work is not fair. In the same way, even if you do it from scratch, and you dont pay Lucas for it is not fair either.
Is the creator of a model from scratch a better person than someone who modifies the scratch builders work?
Talking of people or companies like rubies or Don Post, who pays for building them, and then talking about pople that even if they start from zero, but based in lucas creators ideas is not the same.
In my opinion, the guy that starts from zero, and the guy that recasts someone elses work are both wrong. The only difference is that one works harder,and he is more talented, but in the end both are breaking the law.
But...if you take a Dont post,or an altmann, and you change some details and recast it, and you sell 10 or 20 ..Will Lucas answer you on the phone and tell you ..go ahead son, paid me xxx dollars and good luck with your sales..
It is not worth it to even try it. Just make them and sell them
But what is not fair is taking the work from someone of this forum (mate) like Bobamaker for example, and recast his work and sell it here and in ebay.
Did i make myself clear?
Sorry for my english. i dont get to practice that much, and becomes rusted.
