I received this today in answer to my question to what Quilter's World take on the copyright rules for their magazine. In essence they are saying we can't sell on Ebay!!! I'm going to write back and tell her that some of the people that get the magazines live so far out, that their only source is to sell on Ebay. I can understand not selling 1000s of them, but do think it should be okay to sell ONE! It looks as though, if you read further down, that if you write and ask, they'll probably let you though. Tell me if you read it the same way:
Thank you for your inquiry regarding obtaining permission to produce
projects based on patterns or ideas from one or more of our publications.
We do not require that you obtain our permission for small-scale productions
of projects made from our patterns. You may make and sell these at local
bazaars and retail outlets, fund-raisers, or in other similar manner.
We ask that you do not allow these projects to be sold electronically, such
as via Internet/Web pages, e-mail requests or bulletin board postings. In
small-scale production of these projects we do not require that you indicate
the copyrighted source of the pattern or idea. However, many people are
interested in knowing the source of hand-crafted items, so it's a good
feature to include when selling the project.
Large-quantity or mass production of projects from our publications is
prohibited without first obtaining written consent to do so.
If you have questions regarding whether or not your situation requires
written permission, please feel free to contact us with specifics about your
plans, such as the pattern(s) that you will be using to make the projects
and the quantities you expect to produce, so we can make a better
determination of whether or not our written permission would be required.
