1) In one of his postings, he wrote: "They should at least write that it's a copy and not the original. ... Although they point out that these are not original production cels, they seemed to have deliberately buried that in their text. That bothers me." Not an original cel: We made it clear in our ad that this is a "Hand-Painted copy of the gorgeous portrait that was used for the cover." We also said "This is not an original production cel." Given that the sales text was less than 100 words in length, it is hard to imagine that we "deliberately buried" this latter notice. Based on Mr. Stettler's suggestion, we have also added a phrase to the ad indicating that "this is not a hanken cel," in case anyone thought it may be. 2) Mr. Stettler commented: IMHO, an auction like this is bad for two reasons : 1) People may buy the cel thinking that it's the original (and so worth way more than a mere copy). 2) Even if stated clearly that it's a copy, nothing prevent the person buying it to try to resell it later as an original. re his #1: We believe our ad makes the non-original nature of this cel very clear. To repeat, we were clear that this is "hand-painted copy ... This is not an original production cel." re his #2: It is true that unscrupulous people exist, but Mr. Stettler's logic would prevent the sale of any non-original art on ebay, since someone might try to resell it later as an original. continued...
