He replied. I won't post it here, but he showed very little understanding of copyright law. He did promise to retract the "Vulcan" (missing the point that it's not my design, the Black Vulcan is) and then asked if I owned the site where I got the alien font from. I don't, of course... it's a Creative Commons licensed font.

CC BY-NC. Yup, NON Commercial. So besides violating my copyright (the photo) and Hobbico's copyright (the shroud), he violated the font designer's copyright.

We have made several attempts to contact this person in regards to the stolen Inflight Rocketry Mach 10 artwork. They have made no serious attempt to reply other then claim were spam. We asked several times if this could be resolved like gentlemen.

Never known spam to send a 2 paragraph email about specific artwork theft. However to us this is just a criminal operating a business with stolen property. I would hope in our small community he will be treated as such in the future.

You need to follow his eBay postings and file abuse reports to eBay each time he posts an auction with said stolen artwork.

Well, here's a kicker for you. A moderator on TRF hid my post there, and called me out on it. Did I have personal experience with the vendor?

HELL NO. Why would I buy a kit from him, containing designs and artwork STOLEN FROM ME?

I don't think he even read my post.

If he stole your artwork, you have about as personal experience as you can get without taking him out on a date.

My guess is he hid the post due to a message the "owner" of that company sent. I got one last night and just laughed at it and ignored it. Basically talking about slander and lawyers and such.

I wonder what the IRS would find if they looked into that company to see what kind of taxes were paid to the feds and state for sales/monies earned?

Well, let me retract some of my vitriol. Apparently the TRF moderator in question has found in my favor; seems he reviewed this thread. This is why I didn't call him by name... when you're ticked off like I was, it pays not to dig the hole any deeper than you must. I'm much cooler now, and I formally apologize to anyone offended by my remarks above.

Except the guy at MoreRockets.com. I don't know his name, but I'm not happy with him.

See that was my thought as well.
