vtsilver.com Using Copied 2007 Kangaroo Nugget One Kilo Gold Coin

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.


VT Silver 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 2007 Kangaroo Nugget One Kilo Gold Coin photograph.

Sample Listing

Australian 1 kilogram Kangaroo Gold Coin

The Australian Gold Nugget, also called a Kangaroo, is a gold bullion coin minted by the Perth Mint.

Each coin contains 32.148 troy ounces of gold.

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).
