Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

I found many more of my designs this evening as well as a link to a Titan model.

I have forwarded it to John VanCitters at CBS to see if CBS might step in. I haven't heard from him in over a year, but I thought what the hell CBS should now this is going on.

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

Sean:

I wish you luck, but I think you'll be running into a wall with eBay. A few years ago, I spearheaded a similar action against some guy on eBay who was selling Battlestar-related schematics off my website on T-shirts, including a couple of my own personal designs. "RedSoxFan" was his alias, or something like that. Anyway, even after getting signatures from the other artists he ripped off, because none of us owned the rights to Battlestar Galactica, it was ultimately incumbent upon Universal to make the claim, as they own the intellectual property rights to BSG, not us, who merely made non-official designs based on their universe. No recourse.

Now, since you did the Titan, you might have a stronger legal basis than we did, as Paramount has recognized your work as a part of their I.P., albeit not quite "official" (on-screen), you have official contracts with their agents, with the books & all, and they have more of a vested interest in protecting your work than Universal did with us. So you might have a shot. I'm still thinking that eBay won't listen to you unless you whip out a Paramount lawyer on them. Good luck - I am particularly interested in how this pans out - please keep us informed.

I'm not sure how much legal ground you've got there. The model is wood, so it's hand sculpted and painted, making it their original artwork of your design.

Whereas the guys that 137th Gebirg was talking about, were selling his artwork.

Well the company that has listed my designs has contacted me with an offer for the use of my designs. I am currently thinking it over and may send a counter to see what they say. I am trying to decide what I want to do, but they have contacted me.

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

Hopefully they are told to stop. I sure wouldn't want my own artwork or designs I came up with my own thought sold like that. They are breaking the copyright rules too, aren't they?

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

Yes they are. It's nice that they're willing to cut a deal but at the end of the day, if Paramount doesn't get their vig, they could go after everyone. Be careful with this one Sean.

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

Yes, be careful.

but tell them that before you can agree, you'd need to see an example of the quality of their version of your work.

I scrolled through a few pages of their stuff and if I had the money to blow...
