Thread: Mecum Auction / Copyright

    Default Mecum Auction / Copyright

    I like to inform you that MECUM Auctions used part of our book American Excelsior for promotion, without contacting us. This is an Copyright issue. We did not agree on anything published!

    Thomas Bund, and Bob Turek put a ton of effort, commitment, and resources into that book. The only people who should profit from their book are the people who bought a copy and enjoyed the fruits of their great love for the Excelsior motorcycle. No one should ever assume the right to steal the work, and creativity of people who make the commitment to bring art to this world.

    If you have access to legal council you could send them a cease and desist letter to start; if they ignore you then pursue other options.

    This is a brash action by Mecum. Paul D´Orleans should have known, as he himself is a writer and publisher. Meanwhile it seems tt Mecum has removed the booklet, which was a 1 to 1 copy of Thomas’ and Bob’s book. But they are still using the photos without permission.
