Default Re: Some stuff about Pern

Agh, the etsy stuff...this kind of speaks to the issues I had with the crap-ton of Doctor Who merch that other vendors at TeslaCon were selling. I don't have a problem using antique, vintage, clipart and public-domain images in stuff I make, but I'm very uncomfortable with crafters who use the fair's fair logic ("People want stuff and will pay me so I make it and anyway who's going to notice?") Plain dragon stuff that happens to be the "right" colors, fine, but a lot of Pern terms are actual trademarks that belong to someone (Anne's heirs, Copperheart, whoever owns the rights.) Just like that blue police box? It's trademarked now, it belongs to the BBC, and they CAN in fact tell you to stop using it. Cutting up the book, eh, I don't like it but it's not a violation, but flat-out making stuff using cuts of maps with recognizable trademarked names? Not something I would really endorse...
