  1. I really love the black nickel ones. I know that I'm going to want 4 coins, at least. I really think Mike would have loved them!
  2. Hedge Hopper has 2 different coins. He would prefer that neither version be sold.
  3. the thread doesn't make me uncomfortable. i explained pretty well, what i call my growing moral dilemma. it is about design ethics and infringements. you're a designer right? you should have some views on that subject? I can't advise others to what is legal and what isn't. I am not a lawyer. The ethics don't end at design. I think liability also goes to manufacturers and subsequent sellers. Do we really think the designer is the only one guilty when a coin with copyright issues comes out? yes, but what do YOU think about using copyright/trademark details in your designs. I'm not even going to go there. Why? Because I love my Mickey Diver. I love my Jedi Mickey. I even love my Goofy coin. While none of my personal tags have any licensed figures, I've traded for them. So I don't want to come off as a hypocrite. I do what I do, and if I have to answer for it later, I'll deal with it.

  5. I would love for you to get back on topic also, but not while you are denying what has gotten people upset to begin with. Without the above quoted post, I would never have posted in this thread. sorry, you are right, i did mention the new coin but without using the name which is what i was searching on. in reading the other thread it is very obvious that people do NOT care about infringement. you were happy to get one in the mail. very cool for you. people are upset because i have a handful of tranquility geocoins i feel i have to get rid of. they are upset i am trying to recoup some of my costs by selling them. i wish i could afford to just give them away to the dozens of people who say they want one. i can not. i have said, more than once, it is a conflict i have to deal with. so instead of jumping my tookus because there are issues, how about staying on topic!? how about accepting my mea culpa and get on with the topic. Lara, I'm not trying to be mean, I'm really not. But this subject goes along with the topic. If you purchase items that you feel have copyright issues, then you are encouraging it. If you then go and sell those items, you are just as guilty. The copyright does not end when you buy it from the vendor. I've seen ebay end sales when a copyright infringement has been claimed. And the seller had nothing to do with the production of the coin. While you are writing all this about designing coins with copyright issues, we shouldn't be selling them either. You sold 4 Tranqs in March of this year! Long after you had issues with the rights of the coins. I don't know if you bought them before or after you knew the issues, but I suspect you bought them after, because you sold you entire collection, and you stated that you had issues at that time with the copyright. So, I feel we are 100% on topic. I'm sorry if it makes you uncomfortable.

  7. I'm glad I'm not judging this. They are all so good!
  8. Here is a comparison. Lets say that I buy a bunch of knock off Chanel purses. I go and sell those purses at the flea market. The cops raid the place and confiscate those purses (I've seen news stories about this). I'm then out the money I paid for those purses. I knew they were knockoffs, so I am just as guilty as the person I bought them from. Even if I didn't know they were knockoffs, I'd still lose the purses. I had no problems with you arguing with the others about copyrights and what you believe is right. But when you criticized those admiring the Jedi Mickey coin, I just found that hypocritical. You did what you did, and you did what you felt you had to do. But just remember that when you are criticizing others.
  9. Nobody did more to promote the Tranquility coin than you. You had to have each and every one of them. But you also raged against the use of the Anne Frank quote on the back. Here is an interesting difference. You spent money buying those coins. You spent money on coins which you clearly stated, in your opinion, violated a copyright. You not only promoted them, you rewarded the maker by buying them and gushing over them in the forum. I came home to find a Mickey Jedi in my mailbox. So, pot...meet kettle!
  10. Who are they going to sue? This came in the mail addressed to me, from me. I have no idea who really sent it.
  11. I'd like to thank the mystery sender. Receiving this yesterday, just made my day! Here is the other side: Not a great pic, but you get the idea!
  12. I have one of those. I believe that is a mystery coin. It has been so long that I forgot what it was called.
  13. I hadn't received one either, and I thought I was in the first 100?
  14. I got mine today. It really is a work of art! Thanks so much!
  15. I sent you an email through coin tracking also!
  16. This company is out of business.
  17. I just got & paid my invoice! Thanks so much!
  18. Not to forget there is a Geocoinfest in the USA as well Rock Hill SC Sorry! I'm trying to make that one too!
