Hi all,

We recently stumbled across some dice bags over one Etsy which we're sure will appeal to 40k players, you can see our review here:

gravengames.co.uk/handmade-dice-bags-review

We didn't actually own any dice bags up until now, but like the look and feel of these. Are you a fan of using dice bags? what you think of these designs from Greyed Out Productions?

I thought those designs were from GW not someone else.

Considering GW uses a Hapsburg Eagle for the Imperium, their claim to copyright would be spurious at best.

'Dice Bag' is copyright GW, 2003.

You can copyright a specific depiction of a double headed eagle but you can't copyright the concept of a double headed eagle. Even if the Hapsburgs had trademarked their eagle they couldn't claim the 40k one to be an infringement because its so visually different – if you walked into a GW and showed off your new dice pouch with an accurate historical Hapsburg eagle on it the kiddies would be all "Bleeped text is that?". The 40k Imperial Eagle however IS a registered and maintained trademark and the eagle on that pouch is almost identical, you could walk into a GW with one of them and at least half the kiddies would think it would be legit, the only kids who could spot the difference are the sort who when they grow up will be able to tell the difference between M4A2, M4A3 and M4A4 Shermans. And this is exactly the kind of thing Tradermark (not Copyright) law is there to prevent.
