I have the good fortune to have a large legal firm that has several devout woodworkers among the senior partners. They enjoy going after people that infringe on my plans and content but so far we have been able to work out a decent agreement without crushing someone int eh process. Except for a guy doing this DVD thing where he was selling my plans. He was from Austrailia but selling the DVD’s through an outfit in California. The legal guys took him down quickly and it even got one of the people in the California part of the operation put in jail on unrelated warrants that came up during the investigation. the main guy has been charged by the authorities in his home country and so far, appears to be out of business.
If it were not for these lawyers liking my site and donating their efforts I would never be able to do all this but it is nice to see a true rip-off artist get what is coming to him once in a while.
