Somebody still owns the rights to those symbols. He starts making a few and they could easily come down on him, hard.

Hmm, so you think strategy guides which use game logo's and such owe royalties?

If they're charging money for them, it's a pretty cut-n-dried legal issue. If they give 'em away for free, somewhat less so, but companies can lose their trademark if they don't protect it.

Linden Labs had a pretty cool solution to someone who was doing some unofficial stuff (extensions? Can't remember) with their "Second Life" game. They sent 'em a letter that said, basically, "Hey, you're using our protected property without our permission, and that's not cool. However, we hereby issue you a license to continue doing so until/unless we tell you to stop." One analysis I read said that is a great way to legally protect your trademark without coming across to the user community as a jerk.

IMHO, Vivendi, or whoever now owns the marks on that ring, would be well-served to issue such a letter to the guy who makes 'em.

Was he even making it to sell? I think he just made it for himself and show off.

The guy in the thread Gryph linked bought it from the guy who was offering to make & sell them. He links to that thread where the item is offered in his post.
