There have been a few posts on blogs about copyright infringement and such when it comes to patterns, fabric and making items from both of them.
I am not understanding how a designer puts out a product- either pattern or fabric and then says that you cannot make something and sell it.
I understand that you can not take credit for a pattern that a designer put their hard work into and totally agree with that, but come on - you are not suppose to buy their fabric and then make something with it and resell it? What the --$@!** .
Many people buy fabric and make items for craft shows, gifts, ebay or etsy shops and sell it.
What is the sense of buying fabric if you cannot make something with it and sell it if you so wish?
I just cannot get my head around that.
Do they not design fabric to sell? and yet they say we cannot make anything to sell with it?
Please someone explain this to me!!!
I was sent a link to this website and it makes for interesting read and confuses the matter even more.
Go see for yourself and let me know what you think: http://www.tabberone.com/Trademarks/HallOfShame/HallOfShame.shtml
