    Yeah, I don’t think Windstone wants people selling photographs of their products. Have you informed John?

    o_o omgosh that is so a copyright violation!
    not to mention in that second link with the dragons, that green dragon sculpt looks to be in violation aswell.

    Someone send to John. 😡

    I seem to remember that first print (fairy feeding pegasus) came up once before. If I remember right from before, send it to John.

    Hey, I have that the same fairy that’s in the picture, as well. So I guess it’s 2 violations.

    It seems the seller is taking photos of their fantasy collectibles and selling them as prints. Possibly they don’t know any better! It’s hard to say.

    I have the green hatching dragon in the dragon photo. So that’s definitely 3 violations. 😡

    I didn’t send it to John because I wasn’t sure but it looks to be taken care of now anyway. 🙂

    I can understand wanted to photograph one’s Windstones. I do it all the time – they seem to demand it. But it’s a little odd to sell the photos as original prints. It does seem to me this seller does’nt now any better, but who knows :shrug: …

    “Purchase of print does not include reproduction rights.”

    Lol. Buying a windstone doesn’t mean you have reproduction rights.

    Yah that made me laugh!!! She obviously knows enough about copyright to tell people not to infringe on HER market–but has no qualms about infringing on someone else!

    Taking photos of someone else’s copyrighted work and using it for your profit is a very clear violation of copyright.

    Got a busted dragon? There isn't a Windstone I can't fix!
