    I did the same as Dodie, let all my subscriptions lapse for the same reason. Thank you for posting the link; I have saved it and am thinking of printing it out and taking it to the craft fairs I do.
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    May I add my thanks to the others. As a new quilter I didn't even know there was an issue. I book-marked his site for future reference!

    I'm also bookmarking this article for future reference.
    Great information with actual citations of law--a much more compelling argument than opinion.

    There are many quilt patterns that have different names and fabrics but seem to be the same pattern. How many original quilt patterns can there be? Thanks for the article.

    Taberone makes good sense of the complicated legal mombo jumbo.
    I never could understand how anyone could say you could not make this pattern and then sell your piece. they sold you the pattern to make it. When it is a group of puppets, or dolls, what do they think you're going to do with it? when it is a craft, that's a no brainer.
    Thanks for sharing this link.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.
