[DMCForum] Re: Indecent stickers



Bob,

I never said cars can not be confiscated. I realize that they can. 
I've said this publiclly many times. If I got ever a bad vibe from 
Universal Officially my site and parts would be removed in a 
heartbeat without commentary - they know my site and they know that 
all they need to do is ask. All of us in the BTTF related Delorean 
community exist at the goodwill of the studios.

I take issue with the fact that you claim two little stickers will 
be the end of the world for us. Especially considering what others 
have done in comparison.

I've been in the replica props hobby for over a decade now. I'm 
perfectly aware of the system and how we are at the mercy of the 
studios in ALL respects.

If anything, the threats of lawsuits and harrasment will be more 
detrimental than these stickers could ever be.

I personally feel you are laying blame in the wrong direction.
