    On the other hand, thumbing your nose at the law is one of life's small pleasures...

    No... no rights on replica props. You are allowed to keep what you have because the studio/copyright holder has not gone after you. If it were persued, you could be held liable for possessing unauthorized reproductions of copyrighted works.

    THERE IS NO LAW STATING YOU CAN MAKE REPLICAS FOR YOURSELF.

    I actually have a pretty good Oscar copy that my wife created for me for Best make-up Artist .

    She got it from Suncoast ( years ago ) and had it ingraved for me. I'm glad she did since it was a great gift.

    It was so good that later they had been pulled from the stores because of problems from A.M.P.A.S and replaced with a really crappy one.

    Sorry. Did you really get PM'd for that Ebay link?

    Javamonkey -

    Whatever auction you were looking at has been pulled by ebay, so even re-doing the search you originally did will not yield the what you wanted to link to earlier.

    I AM sorry, but your post compels me to ask...

    How old are you.?

    Age doesn't automatically equate to wisdom, and vise versa, but the fallacy that "if I just make one for myself, they can't legally pursue" is SO wrong, and SO common amongst the naive and the inexperienced.

    Making an unauthorized copy of ANY legally protected intellectual property is against the law, regardless of the quantity made or the intended purpose.

    "Making a copy can't be any worse than a Stormtrooper". THAT is STILL illegal without license or permission from LFL.

    Sorry for being harsh. But there is a lesson here for you and other New Users as this applies to props as well. It is incumbent upon YOU to realize and fully comprehend what you are endeavouring to do, and the risks involved.

    Tread carefully.
