So, following the logic.......If one is not allowed to inquire where to find "Mopar" badges, and if such things should not be "allowed" by the staff of the Z, again, just following the logic here, should having "HEMI" in one's username, being as it's trademarked to Chrysler Corp. or the RAM logo as one's avatar not be allowed as that, too, is a copyrighted image? I mean, we have to be realistic here, if it can be uploaded TO the internet, it can, by the same token, be downloaded FROM the same internet. After all, NFL images/logos are also copyrighted to the NFL and the team yet we all sport our favorite team don't we?

To the credit of this site and the staff here, we work very hard to keep this site clean and fun, for everyone to enjoy and that is something we take seriously. We have a great atmosphere here and that is what we all look forward to when we log on.

It would not be much of a forum, if we could not discuss our different options

Regardless of what it is, nobody is taking money out of chryslers pockets. It's not counterfeiting anything, it's just making a part of a vehicle. If I was copying the truck then that's one thing. I'm a gun nut, and I know the chinese love to make their own leupold and aimpoints, put that companies logo on them, and pass them off as the real thing. Nobody is going for that with these. I personally don't look at this as any different than buying hash stripes or an aftermarket stereo.

Even with Saints fans.



Anyway, what happened and why this is unlocked is I asked if it was okay to post who I'd found to do it since others seemed interested in similar badges. Guys just emailed me today with the price so I thought I'd share, for me that's sort of what the entire point of this kinda site is.

LOL, yeah, even us (we don't have replacement refs, we have replacement Saints ) Saints fans enjoy a good conversation, even if we can't win a game to save our life!

Therein lies the problem. Just because something can be downloaded doesn't mean doing so isn't a violation. The OP deliberately asked for someone to make illegal copies of a logo that he knew another company had been ordered to stop making because of trademark infringement. How is that any different than asking someone to make him a counterfeit copy of a CD or software, both things your policy appears to be against? As for avatars and sigs using logos and such, there is no threat of conversion for commercial usage in that and most companies don't mind in that regard since you aren't making money off them. But taking their logo and putting it on a product to sell, which is what the OP was asking for, is quite another subject. I'm astounded at how uninformed the people running this forum are and how little respect you've shown for the intellectual property of others in this thread. I'll probably get banned for saying the things I've said simply because some of you prefer to ignore your own rules. It is not a credit to your staff that you are not only turning a blind eye to a member abusing your rules, but actually condoning it. Logos, trademarks and emblems are very much the financial property of their owners and not public domain for anyone to use as they please. You are stealing from a company when using them in products being sold without paying for the privilege. Just look at posts 3,4 and 5 if you need evidence of intent. A logo has commercial value. It is for that very reason the company referred to in the OP was stopped from using it on their products without a licensing fee. This is the last I'll say on this since there's apparently no way to convince you that you're wrong. I do suggest that if the forum has an attorney on retainer that you consult with them about this. That little piece of boilerplate language in your rules is there to protect websites more than prevent actual piracy or IP theft. Ignoring it is to your detriment.

Regardless of whether or not it is copyright infringement, those badges would be fantastic to have and if Chrysler does not want to make any aftermarket badges like that then there will always be people trying to make them. All i know is i want a pair exactly like that picture.

BTW... Cajun- i agree completely. this is the best forum site that i have EVER been on. Its admins and moderators do a fantastic job at keeping this site running smoothly. Also, up until last night, what was wrong with your Saints??? Just a side note...

http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread....=custom+badges

called rebadge, the only difference is they wont' be the 3D type. It'll be a flat surface with the color scheme. He sent me a few pics of his work and it looks like it'll come out very well.

If y'all are interested might want to email Nathan. Rebadge@yahoo.com $125 for the pair and I threw in a steering wheel one as well for my truck for an extra 35 bucks.
I do have custom badges but they are not of Mopar or Dodge or Ram so no Copyright was infringed on mine are as my avatar is.
