Wow, DD commenting on my piece of sucky, for the fans, fan art - very cool man. Who knew? Loved your piece in the series, by the way. I'm definitely no artist, just put a piece together for some folks that were clamoring for a Charlie poster, and as such, thought I'd make it available to them if they were willing to pay for my cost to get it to them. Not sure if that puts me at legal risk or not, as this isn't a space I usually hang out in, and if it does, no worries, I'll pull it down if need be. Like I said, not doing it for the cash.
middayshadows wrote: A lot of current "legal-ese" uses the phrase "including not for profit" when it comes to use of copyrighted material. So I might be wary. Think of it this way, even though you are not taking money out of ABC's pockets by charging money for a poster, hypothetically if a someone decides they don't need one of ABC's posters because they already have one of yours, you could be seen as taking their money that way. At the same time, what I think you're doing is on such a small scale, I don't know that they'd truly care.
when you make something that contains entirely characters, peoples likenesses from photos you didnt take, someones writing (the list, that is a scriptwriters output), and overall show concepts, and put it out publically for sale and try to associate it with something that ABC is already doing themselves, you are waving a big giant red blood-in-the-water flag in an ocean of people-in-charge paying very very close attention. and "not for profit" has no standing in copyright, but its a moot point, because the intent here is some kind of profit.

on that note, id like to have seen a charlie poster too. start a campaign for a series two. the shows not over yet. best thing i can suggest for ya.

I imagine a 2nd series of posters is in the works... I mean, have they even covered anything past Season 3?

I'm totally shocked eldrich has ever been banned from a forum. When did condescending self-righteous blow-hards lose their clout?

Eldrich isn't smart enough to be condescending... He's more of a simple dullard from a Whitman poem... no legs, little education, stumping on a soap box, preaching to the (invisible) masses that fill his lonely days... kinda feel sorry for the kid, TBH. Yeah, right... :rolling:

That would be nice Daniel, but after DCAAPB covered the time till the start of this years other ARG, the interactive LostUniversity, with the release of the season 5 Blurays, time runs short. And after Lost ended I expect Carlton going on vacation, and Damon has to write the next Trek movie with Orci and Kurtzman. But after this turned into a huge success, it would be cool to have the second wave in one year, celebrating the release of the then complete ultimate Lost box set ;)

Ok, so I refrained from making fun of the losties but I just have to post this. I actually think its kind of great they are so excited about this (and kind of scary too).

This is a song someone wrote to the tune of Jingle Bells.

Poster time! Poster time!
Boy that print looks great!
F5, F5 and On Sale Soon,
Hit Buy Now, don't hes-i-tay-ate!

Poster time! Poster time!

F5, F5 and On Sale Soon,
Hit Buy Now, don't hes-i-tate.

We flew across the land,
With just one more left to go.
We'll find 16 at hand,
At this great Lost Art Show.

We don't know what we'll see,
What moment will it represent?
Sawyer, Des-who will it be?
Penny's Boat or the Constant?

Oh-poster time! Poster time!
Boy that print looks great!
F5, F5 and On Sale Soon,
Hit Buy Now, don"t hesitate.

If you meet a nice redhead named Myrna, please be nice to her. She's my wife.

And she was in the Navy, so I think she may be able to take you.

P.S. Did you make it out to Murphy's Ice Cream in Dingle?

Cosmically Yours
