    That happens a lot of you do not patent or copyright it and who better to copy than our friends in China. I'm assuming you have not copyrighted the image?

    We def made it, on the plus side $21 U.S for a sticker is pretty steep and I wouldn't imagine anyone buying one, so no one buing means it won't last long due to no market

    It's also free advertising

    How can you copyright it when most of the design is taken from the Volkswagen emblem?

    If anything, it helps with brand recognition and promotes the forum, albeit probably not through the appropriate channels.
    I don't know driving in another way which isn't risky. Each one has to improve himself. Each driver has its limit. My limit is a little bit further than other's.
