Personally I think that is a really bad idea, given that in the modern world everybody thinks they are entitled to a payday.

People will be buying an item in the hope it is fake and this could drive prices higher. Fakes will not be driven out of the market rather just the profit reduced for the forgers. Given that many large operations will have no legal money to be returned to the buyer it will be almost impossible to recoup losses.

A lengthy prison sentence is much more befitting in my eyes.

I understand that the State of California is looking at a law that would allow people who have been sold fake autographed items, to claim punitive damages from the seller, up to ten times what the item sold for.

I think this is a great idea to stop forgers from faking autographs, hope the rest of the US and other countries look at this as well.

You can see in the link Mark Hamill stating that 50-90% of his 'autographs' on eBay are fake, and he is not happy about it.

Are you saying it is not "in print"? I would think a POD is, by definition, the most "in print" that a book could possibly be.

And yes, I have seen POD titles get pulled, so they can go "out of print".

But really, I just like digging. Glad I can give you a moment of entertainment

"Still in print"? For a POD?

Dig, dig, dig...

I would be interested in seeing pictures of your copy, when you get a chance, my copy is exactly the same as Urulöké's pictures.
