Why do the current game mechanics show BPO Market Details when you right-hand click on BPC's? In addition, why are the icons for BPO's and BPC's are identical? Either one of these can lead to disastrous results for people trading via contracts. If you are not diligent looking at the item descriptions to see if it is "Original" or "Copy" either one of these issues can be the difference in making a good deal or being taken in by a scam. I understand that BPC's can not be traded on the open market, yet other items that are similar (eg. Faction armor reps) do not have this issue as the "Market Details" isn't even available from the right-hand click menu.

You will notice that BPCs are not traded via the market so the only thing an rk/Show market info-inquiry could lead to is the BPO entry in the market. Why should this be removed again?

Different colors for BPOs and BPCs... this has been proposed countless times in the past and I'm tired of linking the threads.

Enjoy the fact they look the same. It adds times for gankers to see if its worht ganking you. Smart gankers not looking to waste their remaining sec status on small vlaue loads know the odds of you carrying 5 bs bpo's in the open (no orca or double wrap courier) is slim to none...makes bp's easier to move around like this.

Ganker scans, sees lots of bp's, assumes bpc's and scans new target. MAke them look nice and different and voila, lock, scan, pop.

Cans...buy some. Great for storage and organizing.
