I asked you to substantiate your claim that "China" was waiting to manufacture and sell old pinball machines. You failed to do so.

Quoted from phil-lee:

You are either kidding,naive or need further real-life experiences. Intellectual property is routinely stolen and sold, at least in the Specialty Chemicals Business.

I don't think we're even having the same conversation here.

You made an untrue claim that IP was the same as a liquid asset. They are vastly different. Feel free to make reasonable arguments otherwise.

One always needs more experience, and I certainly wouldn't be called as a subject matter expert on copyright law. However, I have sold and bought IP. I made money from my IP in my teens and have done so for many decades, thanks to copyright law. I've retained copyright lawyers. I think I know enough on the subject to speak about it.

Quoted from phil-lee:

Yes,and it is important to fight this and keep a lid on it,otherwise the substantial investments necessary to develop a Brand become fruitless in a Global Marketplace.

Again with the straw man argument.

Quoted from phil-lee:

Good,all profits can go to a Charity. Can I create a Parody of your work and sell it on t-shirts? I promise to alter it a little from the original.

You don't have to ask my permission to create parodies of my work, that's the beauty of copyright law. But since you asked, go for it. I won't stop you. If you try to sell my work or violate the license terms, I will sue you back to the stone age. Just sayin'

What are you talking about WRT charities?

This is a really tough issue and I see both sides. There is homage and copy. A fake Rolex is a fake Rolex when the faker uses the logos and name. You can make the same exact looking watch and put your logo and it's a homage. It's legal, but still looked down on.

The real gray area is music. I have a real hard time when people try to claim drum beats for themselves when it is a fundamental.

Amen, brother. Love those funky drummers!
