|Since I speak French, and since I deal with plagiarism everyday, and since NOTHING pisses me off more, I phoned Phil Mundi to ask him about the unothorized use of your artwork on his site, and if this act was representative of the level of fidelity one could expect of his products. |
It took him a while to get his mind around the fact that i am simply a person who reads this forum, and not the webmaster of the site.
Anyway, he of course denied knowing of your site, and of course suggested that he was the originator of the art work.
He could not understand my interest in calling his attention to this unotherized use of material, asking why I should care.
I explained that it was indicative of questionable ethics, and that I am likely not the only one reaching this conclusion. All this seemed to irritate him, as he made clear that he had no intention of changing the artwork.
At this point I confirmed that I was wasting my time (as he quite incorrectly suggested I was also wasting his).
Lest I waste the time of anyone else, I will stop here saying only that it is not unrealistic to assume that one could likely expect the same level of fidelity in a product made by this ass.
Monsieur Mundi, souhaitez-vous vous expliquer ?
Jessie, take for taking your time to do it. It was amassing that Phil Mundi insisted that he was the originator of the art work. Anyhow, I gave a call to him and although he did not speak English well, your Jessie call made the conversation understandable for him. It looks like he promised to remove the banners and do not use it. Yes, it is not a comitial site but it is not only about ego. I am not a painter and I did spend quite substantial amount efforts to crated and to implement that banner, mimicking the center image after the Dallin’s “Appeal to the Great Spirit”
Anyhow, I apologies for taken the thread out of subject. It looks like the case is closed and I took the redirection for the Belgium visitors to the Phil’s “fame” page. Let us return to the horn-makers. Jessie, thanks again,
