Perhaps we should be flattered by the number of people including dealers who continually infringe our IP (Intellectual Property) rights by using our copyright images, but we do not find it amusing, and will take legal action against any copyright thieves.
Fort Worth Coin
Fort Worth Coin Company, 2822 West 7th Street, Fort Worth, TX 76107, 817-336-1782, owner and president, Michael Launi, member of the American Numismatic Association (ANA), Texas Numismatic Association (TNA), Oklahoma Numismatic Association (ONA) and Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), are just one of the many coin dealers worldwide who commit copyright theft by using our copyright images without our permission.
On their page http://www.fortworthcoin.com/, which we partially reproduce here, they are clearly using our Krugerrand reverse image, and on http://www.fortworthcoin.com/, they use both obverse of reverse of our famous 1974 Krugerrand image.
We counted at least 9 instances where Fort Worth Coin were using one or more of our images on their pages to sell their products in competition with us. There may be more on their site and in its underlying database, but where, if they had no current stock, the items were not showing up on the site.
