Response to really strange defence

I dare say there's a significant difference between making pirate copies (or even slightly modified copies) of a figure or resin detail set, and a simple tool like a etch rolling set or even a punch and die. The amount of creativity and effort going into the design really cannot be compared.

After all, if I wanted to begin selling hammers or screw drivers, there's really only so many ways to make these things. And an etch roller set or a punch and die set, is right in there with the hammers and screw drivers.

The two roller sets you show don't seem to share the selection of roller diameters either, which will make for a lost case in a copyright infringement case too. It would be a rip off if RP copied the other set right down to the slotted edge, but they don't. Not by a long shot. A non issue indeed.
