HASBRO COLLECTOR'S EVENT 2003

HASBRO'S POLICY ON LEAKED IMAGES AND PROTOTYPES

Here it is, for the record, ladies and gentlemen.

Spoken at the Collector's Event this past Wednesday by Wayne Charness, Sr. Vice President of Corporate Communications at Hasbro:

"Leaked images or prototypes that are posted without Hasbro's permission are not acceptable."

And furthermore:

"We will not ignore and we will not turn our back on [sites that post such images.]"

Hasbro's Legal Department will forward guidelines to all sites that they deal with. These guidelines will plainly say what is allowed and what isn't allowed.

And prototypes and leaked images are not allowed.

Not only that, but we learned from one member of one of Hasbro's design teams that each prototype on which his team works is easily identifiable as to what factory it came from.

So for any people who buy prototypes and then post images online, know that Hasbro can determine where that prototype was obtained. And there's nothing stopping them from following-up on such information.

More on this in an upcoming "Sound Off" column.
