Re: [DML] - being squashed by the man?

>   He took the risks.  He reaps the rewards.

The words above really sum it up for me.  While I love the products some 
of you have made (Tom's mirrors are on order!!) I do have to say, 
without any disrespect intented, Those making products on a limited 
scale are not really taking a huge risk on their product that would 
destroy their livelyhood if it didn't sell.

I believe in risk vs. reward 100%.  DMCH has taken that risk and proves 
it over and over again with all the new stuff they are investing in.  it 
costs alot of money to re-tool some of the part we all need.  

If you had taken the time to re-register a trademark and spend the 
millions of dollars in a new facility and purchasing the entire Delorean 
inventory and have worked hard to recreate parts for our cars wouldn't 
you be a little protective over the use of the DMC logo?  Come on 
people, get some clarity here.

So yeah, maybe DMCH came across heavy handed but look at the investment 
they have laid on the table for the benefit of all of us!   I'm not 
saying we should all bow down and kiss DMCH's feet for what they have 
done but understand they took that risk.  What risk have any of you put 
on the line that deserves the use of the logo..really.  A few hundred 
buck, a thousand? two thousand?......It's peanuts compared to the risk 
Stephen took to get DMCH to where it is.

Even if DMCH's claim on all uses of the logo is false, which nobody has 
really proven, it would be bad form to not at least call them to see if 
they would like to market your product.  You certaintly will have a 
larger audience than if you tried to market it yourself.  Unless of 
course you are looking at making yet another DMC logo T-shirt. 

Is some of this "sour grapes" that Stephen had the foresight to re-
register the logo?  I can't help but think that some of this is jealousy 
and a bit of "who does he think he is".   My answer is (and I do love 
you all, really) GET OVER IT!  It's a friggin logo for a car.  Make your 
products but forget the logo...if you want the logo for your car go 
ahead, nobody can stop you from adorning anything you make for yourself 
with the DMC logo but it you try to sell take the risk of 
DMCH sending you a letter I guess.

again, no disrespect intended to any of you. I'm just tired of reading 
about this whole logo issue and seeing Stephen getting beaten up for 
tyring to protect it.
