    What an uncreative dirtbag.

    Why do people have to do stuff like this?

    I just sent him a message asking him why he thought it was ok to steal the look of the logo here. You know what this is going to get me. Two things. Jack and schitt. :lol

    those things makes me really want to quit doing things like paper props - the internet has become the grab bag of the lazy…

    Because they are uncreative, but still want to make a fast buck.

    I actually heard back from the guy...

    Here is what I sent him:

    Dear novelprops,

    Just wondering why you feel it's ok to steal the general look of the replica prop forum (RPF) logo for your prop site?
    Here is what he replied with:

    ??? The only thing that looks similar is the box. The rest is all me. So no theft involved - sorry, I am actually working on a new logog - that was just a quick revision. My design skills are better than that.

    Thanks for asking
    novelprops


    So,he steals the basic look and feel from this prop site for his own prop site but says it isnt stealing. Hmmm.

    I see the IMF logo , but not seeing the comparison with the RPF logo . Is there a side by side comparison ?

    The Logo on his homepage used near identical elements of the current RPF logo. He has since changed it.

    I haven't sold anything on ebay in a while. If you post a question can he delete it? If not, why not post a question asking why he stole graphics from someone else.

    What am I missing? It was brought to his attention and he changed it. Granted, he stole the idea but he got caught and didn't fight it, just changed it. Is that about right?

    Sucks big time YCL :( (n)thumbsdown:thumbsdown

    The seller can choose to post a question he received in public, or not. They are not posted on the listing automatically.

    Ha !

    It will be hard for him to put "novel props" in his signature or selling in the JY under this name now !

    Sorry dude, that would make my blood boil

    Can you not send a complaint to eBay, showing that he has clearly plagiarised your work and try and get them to at least take down that particular listing?

    If nothing else might get him to think twice before using other fan made logos he's found via Google image search...

    I think protecting the brand and our home RPF is more important my friends… Sure I would have truely have fun with the beatings, but this is RPF's logo and we all knew too well what it means, when the old DNS was hijjacked and now the logo's got raped!

    I'm not familiar with the IMF stuff, is that seal your invention solely, YCL? Or did you recreate it from something seen in the movie?

    No, you're right. The t-shirt one has subtle differences.

    Could have been changed slightly on purpose though...

    I like the brushed aluminum font he used. Maybe we should steal that from him and add it to our RPF logo!! :lol
