I was reading an article about conterfeiting branded products and when I got to the section on toys, there was a part about Lego:
"In the last few decades, LEGO has become a very popular target for bootleggers. In flea markets, it's common to find entire LEGO sets duplicated brick-for-brick (with matching copied box art) with varying degrees of plastic quality. Then, bootleggers have actually gone a step further and are producing knock-off kits based on fan creations posted online."
I had been considering posting my Friendship house redesign publicly, as it's almost finished, but now that I read what was in that article, I'm going to have to think more carefully about how I do that.
Perhaps with restrictions so random people can't view the design.
To be honest, I put months of work and creativity into it, I'd not be happy if someone misused an idea I intended to give away free for monetary profit.
