Probably another sockpuppet account of mass copyright violator [or innocent, talented artist depending on who you talk to] of "cnc3d-models"

Xxray ... why do you say from Russia? The Ebay post shows the vendor is from USA.

EDIT ... ships from Moscow.

Astonishing lack of ethics wherever they are operating from.

I suppose it depends on how much a design has to change to not be the same design. To me it's a blatant rip off but it's not 100% the same design so the seller would probably argue artistic license.

Well, this isn't the first time my models and/or projects have been "shoplifted" and put on the market.

It is annoying alright, but very little can be done about it. I just move on a create more stuff. I think we're keeping slightly ahead of the shoplifters. :)

Oh, and Dave...I knew you were kidding! No worries!

Always best to use the winking emoji if you're being sarcastic. These days sarcasm is almost impossible to spot as the number of people who would say that and mean it is very large.

I agree with Adrian, add a smilie face..
Sofware piracy dates back at least to the time when Peter Norton created a board to copy and pirate software.... :evil:
