I think you guys are all misunderstanding LDS entertainment. They make it very clear that you are not being charged for the discs, you are being charged as compensation for the money that they spent to put the set together. Whether they are making a profit or not is impossible to tell (it is highly probable that they are), but selling artwork is not a crime, even if it is of copyrighted material. Therefor, LDS has done nothing illegal. The only issue is morality, which I will admit is shaky in this circumstance, but as far as legality, there is really nothing to worry about with these people.

Hi LDS entertainment!

I am not from LDS I have been a member here since before LDS was a thing. I’ll admit I don’t really know much about copyright laws, I was just offering my own take on the issue. Sorry if I said anything that offended you guys, you all know more about this than me hahaha

There was nothing offensive about your post. You were simply wrong.

The question was never wether fan-edits were legal. They are not. So any way of distributing fan-edits, no matter if paid or for free, is technically a copyright infringement.

The community came up with a way to at least morally justify what they are doing. Not charging people for fan-edits is part of that. Anyone selling fan-edits on ebay is therefore legally and morally in the wrong.

Okay that makes sense. Sorry for not being very educated on this topic, I’m a 17 year old high school junior and I don’t know a lot about copyright laws. Thank you guys for clearing that up.

DESPECIALIZED EDITION <em>QUALITY CONTROL</em> THREAD - REPORT ISSUES HERE
Time

In SW 2.5, there is a lot of color inconsistency on the Death Star. I know the colors are based on an original print, so I was just wondering if the color inconsistency in 2.5 was the way it looked in the original,or just human error on your part. Another thing I noticed was that in the scene when the millennium falcon reaches Yavin, the leaves in front of the original matte painting of the rebel base are blurry and not very well composited. One last thing is that in the shot where the millennium falcon leaves that hangar on Tatooine the top of the tallest building does notch the compositing of the rest of the building.

Harmy's RETURN OF THE JEDI Despecialized Edition HD (AVCHD DVD9 &amp; NTSC DVD5 available!!! SEE FIRST POST!!!)
Time

Great work as usual, Harmy. I just recently got my hands on the despecialized editions, and I wanted to point out a possible problem with ESB despecialized. In the scene where Vader is communicating via hologram with the emperor, I noticed that the face of the emperor takes a bit too long to become visible. In the GOUT, his face becomes visible immediately, but in despecialized, it takes about a half second. Small problem, but I thought that it deserves to be brought up. Also, will there ever be a version 3.0 for A New Hope? Thanks!
