    Quilting and Copyright Law

    I thought this article, which is very up to date, is something that others would find as interesting as I did. There is nothing like FACTS as opposed to MYTHS.

    Thank you. Pattern makers have gotten so out of hand with putting restrictions on their patterns that I will no longer buy a pattern where there is as statement about not being able to sell anything you make from the pattern. There are plenty of designers that are more than happy to have you sell their products at craft fairs, etc.

    Thank you for posting this. It was very informational and I appreciate having the copyright issue clarified. It always aggravated me when I see a design I like but they restrict it's use. It's nice to know what is and isn't true.

    So if you buy a pattern you can make quilts from it and sell them even if they say you can't. Because their restrictions aren't legal. They can't restrict your use of the pattern. What you can't do is copy the pattern and sell it.

    I was also impressed with how many times they used the Quilting Board as a source of info. that I wasn't expecting! LOL

    thank you so much for posting this aricle it is good to get the truth I know after that publication in McCalls I let all magazine subscritions expire as I did not want to spend money on something I could not use I have not even bought a magazine off the news stand since then just use the free ones on the internet I always wondered why they put their patterns on the market if they did not want people using them good to know if I want to make something for a craft sale it is legal thanks again for the truth

    Very interesting updated information. I think there are many discussions on this topic on the board somewhere, but this is recent, and very understandable. Thanks for posting.
