In what way are they allegedly stealing designs? Can someone explain?

You know it's true, Predino Wink

Everything is said about this on DTF.

My point ? I absolutely dislike these kind of things, just as I don't like the last Nayab thing. What a Face

We are also a good place to discuss that kind of subjects, so no problem having that discussion here. Very Happy
My opinion is simple, artists work should be respectedand not used commercially without their permission.

Of course, Roger is right, I didn't mean this subject is forbidden here Wink

Even so it is not a fair thing to do.

Wow, that's really unfortunate, and very low. There are some really fantastic artists out there, even extremely well regarded, who are barely able to scrape together a living wage. Companies using work without permission is contributing irresponsibly to an already serious problem.

With all of the ruckus about Geoworld and plagiarism, I feel as if I should collect them all while I can before someone sues them and make there products rare. but I have faith in them because the mammals cards seem to have digital copies of the models instead of someone else's work

the figures are also being copied, just from different sources than the cards
not every figure seems to be copied, but some of them most certainly are

I just want to say this that the Animals on the cards that come with the mammals look like Drawings of the figures they come with. Not something completely different like with the Dinosaurs. Perhaps Geoworld is doing things differently now
