Hitchhikers Guide to the Gal

Recommended Posts

I was introduced to "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" on a long road trip into Mexico. I drove and my shotgun companion read. We gjensen approached me about doing this coin I was excited. The artwork was done by Jamie of Mad Hatters Neverland.

 

Samples are in hand and the coin is in production. We expect this coin to be up for sale right after Geowoodstock.

I can't speak for other folks but i think im a big enough geek (& addict) to need (NEED) to buy both of your designs. How could I pass on a hitchhiker coin?!

 

Sigh, more money going to coins....must.... learn...self control

 

 

edit: by "both of your" i meant both the arthur & trillian design and the hogwild design :drama: i.e. neither of you need to worry about the competition...at least in the case of me

Wasn't there already a design in work for this coin? Something to do with hitchhiking, a thumb and a towel and always knowing where it is. I like the idea and the fact they used 42 being lifes big mystery and all, Is this the same design that was posted in the forums?

Very nice of you to make a personal coin for our son "the hitchhiker" :drama:

No, this isn't the same coin.

 

There is another hitchhiking-esque coin...it's our personal coin...check down the coin forum page a bit.

 

However, I will say this design is great and you should just pick up these coins and our coins! :drama:

Hi!

 

I don't mean to be a party-pooper, I really don't. However, seeing these coins makes me curious about copyright / trademark / intellectual property issues. Granted, it's an issue I don't know much about, but I wonder if the coin creator could get in trouble from the HGTTG publishers, D. Adam's family, or whoever owns the rights now for selling coins with images that are likely trademarked.

 

I've actually been thinking of this a lot lately because I would love to make a geocoin that resembles the "Smiley G" icon in my avatar (to the left) with the Boston Red Sox "B" on the bill, but am gun-shy about using the "B" in fear of getting slapped with a suit or fine from the Red Sox for selling them without licensing rights.

 

Any thoughts? I imagine that this is an issue that is worth discussing as people create "fan coins" or use trademarked symbols (such as the Red Sox "B") on their coins of organizations they are fans of. Maybe this is a discussion for another thread?

Both this design and the design on my personal has been altered enough to slide by any copyright concerns as far as we can tell...

 

IANAL, but I'd have to say I think yours probably is fine, I'm not sure about this one. It looks like some of those graphics are exactly the same as those on the books.
