    Prints on Ebay... do you think they just printed these themselves?

    So I'm cruising around on Ebay and come across this:

    DISNEYLAND Pirates of the Caribbean attraction FRAMED ART print poster | eBay

    I look at some of the other items they have and I'm struggling to remember seeing these images in these sizes anyplace else. It makes me think they just found a, perhaps, high quality digital image of these and printed them. Pretty sure that's not allowed. Your thoughts?

    Maybe they drew, painted them themselves? That would be allowed.

    Did you go look at them? They have a "print" of the John Horny Pirates piece. I don't see them painting it that painstakingly identical.

    Yeah, I looked closer this time. I bet they bought the prints somewhere and basically you are buying the frame.
    I got my hands on a bunch of "Mickey" prints signed by a famous artis (so famous, I can't remember his name right now) for a buck each. I could probably get them framed and sell them for about $50 each if I tried. There is stuff out there, sometimes you come across a good deal.

    The thing is, I hadn't seen these prints for sale anywhere in these sizes, so where did they get the prints?

    Based on the variety of the images, especially a print of a DLH ad, it does appear that these are non-Disney produced prints of copyrighted Disney images.

    Most of those on ebay are reprints. If you are looking to just decorate a room for cheap, they are a great way to go. But if your looking for legit prints, dont even tempt it. Only if you know the seller is a real legit disney seller. Even then id be sceptical.

    I think the stuff from FourParks seller is actually direct from a Disney O/O company. Like the Disney Gallery online. Could be wrong, but I think I've heard they are legit.

    While I love a good deal, I wouldn't want to support a seller that reproduces images that aren't respecting copyright rules. The John Horny image is one of my favorites, but I want the real deal, not a digital reprint regardless how good it is.

    There are tons of bogus counterfeit Disney lithos on eBay. Anything you see advertised as signed, sold by a certain seller in California, is an illegal print of Disney's copyrighted artwork, though the signatures of people like X. Atencio and Bob Gurr are genuine.
