One of the users on the forum has brought to my attention the fact
that a Chinese printer is offering to print up sets of cards, and even uses
as examples some well-known Tarot decks which are still under
copyright.

Please take care if you find classic tarots available at bargain prices
on the various auction sites.

Gregory, it surely would be wrong to give publicity to the particular Chinese printer, by indicating their details.

One of the users on the forum has pointed to a YouTube video in which the creator of the Wild Unknown tarot shows that her work has been pirated by a Chinese printer.

It can help us to AVOID using them for our own work ? But fair point.

Sadly it doesn't name the printer (that I can see.) But I'm guessing.. well, I emailed you to ask...
