''Tea Duelling is a concept created and developed by Geof Banyard (aka Doctor Geof) and John Naylor (aka Tinker). The creators exert all rights to the concept, titles, imagery and rules. It is a fun concept and we are happy for people to promote and run competitions, etc as long as this is done free of charge other than with the express permission in advance of the creators. Anyone who chooses to run tea duelling matches, publish material, etc. for reward without advance consent agrees to donate all profits and a minimum additional donation of £500 (USD 750) to the charity of the creators' choice.''
This chap is a plagiarist plain and simple.
So Mr Author .. pay up, or shut up shop.
In the Arizona Tea Dueling community, the author is a tea dueling champion, as for world champion, well, his moniker is the Dirty Weasel, and he can be a bit of a stinker, but he has a good heart and puts on a good show, and I can attest, he's not getting rich on this book.
I have read all the reviews that are posted, and I can understand why some folks are upset about this book, but I wonder, just how many of those people have actually seen inside the book? I know that the rules and regulations are readily available online and why purchase them when you can acquire them for free? I tend to think of this book more as a quirky, whimsical picture book on tea dueling, that has the rules listed. I know some would still say that's not cricket either, and they are entitled to their opinion, but it would be a bit more fair if they had as least taken a gander at what's inside the book, before condemning it.
The creators had generously placed tea Dueling in the public domain allowing anyone to play the game or run competitions on a non commercial basis. The author of this "guide" clearly has no respect for other creators.
Please now Mr Khave respond with unpleasantness and a self important justification for your actions.
