PostSubject: A question about the author's rights in Horsing Around   Sun Sep 16, 2012 12:01 pm

I've got a question concerning the author's rights.
I have a resin horse from Horsing Around, sculptured by James Richmond. I'd like to re-sculpt his hind legs and back a little, as I don't like them. But AFAIK in some cases you may need a personal permission of the author to add some major changers to the model's shape (esp if you want to show off your model later).
Does anyone know who has the author's rights to Horsing Around models? The sculptor himself or someone in HA?
Or maybe I do not need to ask at all in this case?

Some time ago I've read something about it on Deborah's website. If I remember good it is not allowed to change sculpt work if You are willing to sell the model lately scratch But, it's better to ask of course. :)

Re-doing for sale ( at a larger scale Wink ) is certainly a violation of copyrights.
And you must always make it clear that it is a re-paint, of course.

But that is only my gut-feeling, - it would be VERY interesting to hear more !!!
Are there no lawyers among our members ? bounce bounce

Well, I'm not willing to re-sell this horse right now, but I'm not sure if it would stay in my collection forever. Something may make me part with it one day. And I do not want to have any difficulties while trying to sell it:)
As well as I don't want to face any problems right now, after sharing the pics of the re-sculptured horse:)

I know that Lynn Fraley, for ex, allows to change the horse's mane and tale, but not the shape of the horse itself:)
