Using Copied Krugerrand 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. 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 Krugerrand obverse and reverse photographs. Bizarrely, state that our photograph is their most stolen photograph, clearly this is untrue.

Sample Listing

This is our most stolen photograph, the obverse of the same coin being the second most stolen.

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).
