Re: Murphy to cop plea on federal charges

The company that was going to make the molds and  casts was the Black Hills 
Institute of Geological  Research.

< Who or what company  made those molds? Technically Mary's right, for 
everyone to have their butts  covered the molding/casting operation should be 
questions. However, there  are a lot of businesses out there that cater to 
molding and casting for artists,  garage model kits, etc., rather than the 
sciences and more specifically fossils.  In this case these businesses might 
have the knowledge to ID a species  beyond what the client tells them it is, or 
even know to get proper  documentation for the specimen and sort out issues 
such as casting and  reproduction rights. I've seen artists have their work 
reproduced without  permission and sold for profit by a third party.. Certainly 
doesn't make it  right (or LEGAL), but unfortunately it happens! Fortunately, 
the businesses that  specialize in paleo-replicas (at least here in North 
America) are well known and  can be judged by the paleo community for the 
quality of 
their work in all  aspects.>
