Using Copied 1974 Krugerrand Obverse and Reverse Images

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.

parasgold is just one of the many coin dealers, bloggers & websites worldwide who commit copyright theft by using our copyright images without our permission. On their website, a page of which we reproduce here, they are clearly using our 1974 Krugerrand Obverse and Reverse photograph.

Sample Listing

Paras Gold offers a wide selection of government backed gold bullion coins, including the American Eagle, American Buffalo, Canadian Maple Leaf, South African Kruggerrand, Vienna Philharmonic, British Sovereign, Chinese Pandas, Mexican 50 Pesos and more. We also sell Pre-1933 US gold coins and a variety of gold bullion bars.

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. We can partially understand why they do it; it is quick and easy (but then so is robbing people).
