Another Brony project bites the dust

Looks like another brony project has been taken down by Hasbro’s lawyers.

Coins of Harmony - Six Collectible Pony Coins is the subject of an intellectual property dispute and is currently unavailable.

The Coins of Harmony no longer appears on Kickstarter. This time Kickstarter posted the complaint in the interests of transparency.

But … as with last time, I don’t understand why they did this. This project is over. I think the money has already changed hands. What’s the point of making this legal threat now?

It seems inconceivable that they can’t find brony projects fast enough. It’s not like they’re hard to find.

Perhaps they’re trying to appear tough on copyright violation, while actually intentionally letting stuff through?


Update (5/12/2013) : I’ve confirmed with the project creator that the money has already changed hands and the project is going ahead as planned. It seems like this take-down is purely symbolic.
