Controversial Thursday- Doing recasts on illegal model kits
Here is where the controversy comes in. Modelers are sculpters have NO qualms about making original productions of TRADEMARKED creations but get pissed as hell if someone takes that work and recasts it and sells it....HUH? BOTH are breaking the law!!!! How can the sculpter be upset at anything is beyond me! Why is it ok in their minds to rip off from someone else´s work but a recaster that does it is from the devil?
So that is controversial Thursday! For the record I am FOR recasters. I love buying something cheaper than an ¨original¨ that didn´t have any say so in the first place about it. I do not like the sculptors always alerting Ebay when a recast is selling online when the sculpter broke the law in the first place.
So whaddya think?
