This one is about $500 cheaper, and produced in India where I doubt American intellectual property law holds much sway. I can envision the posts full of vitriol that must be doing the rounds on MyPalmery and Sword Loser's Guide, I've seen Darksword get on the receiving end of allegedly copying someone else's sword design on those sites and the nerd rage was vicious haha - one maker was even carrying on about litigating. My view is that imitation just cannot be stopped, and trying to stop someone copying your work on the internet is an exercise in futility. Take Hollywood for example, not even the Film Industry with all its money and power has been able to truly stop people illegally downloading movies. Sword-Site is an aggregrate site but my independent work on this site gets ripped off all the time - for instance Sword Loser's Guide blatantly stole my colour scheme, but rather than get mad about it I congratulated them for liking my colour scheme so much that they felt the need to adopt my colour scheme for themselves! Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and if my site at just a little over two years old has forced MyPalmery and Sword Loser's Guide to play catch up then I take that as a huge compliment, I won't waste time feeling hurt about it, on the contrary it is a huge pat on the back for me!
Reminds me of the story of the waves Cnut used to illustrate to the sociopathic courtiers that tend to be drawn royals, that despite the sycophantic insistence of some of the King's court that the tides themselves would recede as though Cnut were Moses himself (Moses was probably blessed by seismic act Moses was unaware of however incidentally and Jewish enslavement in Egypt is not considered a historical fact). Needless to say the tide did come in and hopeful Western Civilisation had its proof that Kings were men, and prone to all the idiosyncrasies and failings that all mankind are capable of.
