Copyright question and board rules question
I have received requests for the pattern I used to make the paper pieced door wreath. It's a pattern I bought years ago, and no one has been able to find this company that produced it. We know who it is, and their address, but it does not seem to be around anymore.
1st question, do copyright laws still apply, or am I free to share it (for free of course)? It is sitting on this computer, I just used computer paper, and it would be so easy to just make a couple of clicks to share it.
I do honor copyright laws, because I do understand them, but in this case, do they still apply?
Also, I did a little research, mostly for my own interest, and I came up with many website that a photo of a quilted wreath is shown, using various methods to make it. Some, the pattern is on the site, some it's just an example of what that person did. I was blessed with the ability to kind of see how something is made, and use that photo as a way to design my own pattern (for me, I NEVER sell anything) and many of these photos fit that idea.
Can I post the list of sites here, or is it against board rules to do that?
