Not to mention it would be a copyright infringement and counterfeit?
Quoted from lordloss:
If you printed your own translite maybe... but most of those pinball parts are not infringable
Quoted from chad:
Only if sold?
I think making a whole machine that didn’t exist prior would be a copyright infringement, regardless of parts availability. Only if sold.....good question. I would say not, copyright infringement regardless......see the case examples of people downloading “free” music.....yeah they went after those offering the supply, but the downloaders were also breaking the law.
However....if the machine had just one “original” part from a machine that was parted out and thus destroyed.....might make a case there. But only if one new machine became into existence from the parted out machine? Idk I know just enough law to be dangerous.....not a lawyer.
