I apologize beforehand if this is not the appropriate place to post this, I just thought I would give it a shot.
I just found this forum and it looks great, I am a big fan of stackoverflow.com(web dev version of this)...anyways I am a web developer and big magic player/fan who is interested in creating an online MtG store that will sell individual cards, other MtG merchandise/accessories, and offer advice and input on building decks and gameplay strategies. I know there are many sites like this out there but I think I can set myself apart from the others in someway or another(I have ideas, I am just keeping them secret for now : D )..The main focus is creating a website really revolving around this great community and the customer service I can provide them...
I have a couple of questions, besides any input that you might want to give?
1.) The legality of all this, I know I can't buy directly from wizards or there authorized distributors because I do not have a brick and mortar location? But is it legal to purchase bulk booster boxes on outlets like amazon and then resell individually
2.) Am i aloud to use images of the cards and other promotional material. Obviously I will give all credit to wizards and reference the appropriate trademarks?
I did get in touch with wizards customer service but they told me because it is a legal issue I need to send a letter to there legal department, which I am willing to do but I thought I might get some others opinions!
Thanks for any input, Skev
