Regal Assets ( of Universal City, California, USA & Copyright Theft
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.

Regal Assets & Copyright Theft
Regal Assets, of Universal City, California, USA is yet another dishonest website owner / dealer who has used our copyright images without permission.
The two sides of an Elizabeth II gold sovereign in the photographs on their strangely titled "British Sovereign Gold Coins" page of their website, are of course ours, and can be found on the 1958 Sovereigns page of our Gold Sovereigns website.
The PAMP Suisse Fortuna Gold Bar shown on their page is a copy of one of our photographs.

Copyright Theft is Dishonest - Can You Trust This Dealer?
Using other people's copyright images is illegal, it is dishonest, and it is unethical. Using the hard work of a fellow dealer to sell the same goods in competition with him demonstrates an extremely low standard of ethics. We would not recommend anybody to transact business with this person or company.
Who would have thought such an honest reputable company would resort to stealing images from their competitors?

Domains by Proxy, Inc
Domains by Proxy, Inc claims to exist to help individuals from having their names and addresses made public, which we believe is probably fair. Nominet in the UK allow private non-trading individuals to withhold their address details. However, it is obvious that there must be many individuals who wish to avoid publication of their details for other reasons.
There are many reasons we could imagine which would make it desirable for individuals to conceal their identity and whereabouts, including being criminals, terrorists, copyright abusers, child pornographers.
Domains by Proxy appear to be equally happy to protect these undesirable elements of our society. They do publish a "Subpoena Policies" page on their website, which states that they charge the enquirer or complainant for "compliance costs", which we believe could be an attempt to obstruct anybody with legal reasons for wishing to know the identity of domain registrants.

What's Wrong?
It is dishonest and unethical to pirate and steal other people's work by using high quality copyright photographs without the owner's consent. To do so in competition with them is doubly devious. We can partially understand why they do it; it is quick and easy (but then so is robbing people).
In this case Regal Assets could not be bothered to take the time and trouble of photographing a gold sovereign themselves, or paying a professional photographer to do it for them, so decided it was quicker and easier to steal ours instead. They probably also thought we would not notice.
For these reasons, we conclude that Regal Assets are dishonest and unethical, and we recommend anybody to avoid doing business with them. If they will cheat us by stealing our photographs, what would they do to you for your gold coins or stamps, or your money?
We have noticed at least one of our other photos on another of their pages, but have not yet had time to trawl through all the garbage.

Why Hide?
If Regal Assets are reputable, why hide the identity of their domain registrant using a proxy service such as Domains by Proxy?
It's probably quite a useful device for terrorists and hackers, but not for honest reputable businesses.

Gold Coin Blogger
Regal Assets have a link on Gold Coin Blogger (, so there may be a close link between them, or they may be one and the same person. Both hide behind the skirts of Domains by Proxy.

PRWeb, Vocus PRW Holdings LLC of Maryland, ( & Regal Assets & Copyright Theft
PRWeb, Vocus PRW Holdings LLC of Maryland, ( issued a Press Release for Regal Assets, which contained a number of our high quality copyright images without our permission.

Regal Assets state, inter alia, that "Canadian gold maple leaf coins ... were the first gold bullion coins to be minted (in) .9999 pure 24 karat (gold). While this is close to accurate (pure 24 carat gold only exists in theoretical minute quantities) , and .9999 is only 23.9976 carats. Also, although Canadian maples were first issued in 1979, they were only made in .999 gold, and the production of .9999 gold did not start until 1983. Anybody reading the PRWeb / Regal Assets pages could be mislead into believing that all Canadian gold maples were composed of .9999 gold.
