    according to the forum rules, we are not to show images of copyrighted patterns without permission of the owner, right? does that include showing a quilt made from a copyrighted pattern?


    BTW, the hair implants and cosmetic surgery do not suit you at all. liked you much better the other way.

    Butterflywing, I have to agree with you on Admin's new "do". Kinda looks like me first thing in the morning. :shock:

    Okay. Admin will be able to say for sure, but when I posted any of my finished counted cross stitch pictures on anothe forum, I emailed the manufacturer or designer to ask for permission to post it. Everytime I asked I was told it was fine, but to list who the manufacturer and/or designer is. I figure it's worth asking first to make sure it's okay.

    Wow, another thing I never thought of. I am too naive. And oh my goodness what happened to our administrator. Shocking.

    I'm not part of admin, but I don't see how showing a quilt made from a copyrighted pattern is an infringement. If you bought the pattern, then you are given explicit permission to produce a quilt from that pattern. The quilt you made is an original work of art. The pattern and the quilt are mutually exclusive of each other. I don't see how showing the quilt, again, is an infringment of any sort.

    From my understanding......

    You can show the quilt to others/post on board, but you cannot RESELL or copy the pattern and give to others.
    Not sure how it works if you make the pattern and want to put it in a show.......but I'm sure someone on here knows the answer.

    He may be in disguise to try and fool the mob of drooling women who have been stalking him? *puts on best innocent expression* ;-)


    As for the copyright, my understanding is the same, you buy the pattern and can make as many quilts as you like from it, but you cannot re-sell the pattern.

    This issue of copyright is so tricky, and I have heard so many conflicting opinions. I found this article on the internet, written by a woman who is a quilter and also an attorney specializing in intellectual property. I know - you can find ANYTHING on the internet, and you don't know which articles are factual and which aren't. However, these rules make sense to me, so I intend to follow them.

    http://www.quilttownusa.com/Town_Hall/cpexperts.htm

    To paraphrase the article, if you buy a pattern you may make the article in the pattern, and sell this article or give it away, and you may sell or give away the original pattern. (You paid for it, you own it - the pattern that is, not the copyright.) You may also make the item in the pattern and use it as a raffle quilt.

    You cannot mass produce the article in the pattern for distribution, and you cannot make copies of the original pattern to distribute to others. A copy of the pattern for your personal use is allowed. (I would assume that if you make a copy while you own the pattern, then you should destroy that copy if you sell the original pattern, or give it to the person who receives the original pattern.)

    The article doesn't address showing your quilt, but I can't believe that anyone selling patterns would discourage that activity, or that it would be illegal to show something that you legally made, having purchased the pattern (or having been given it by someone who did purchase it). It is good manners to give credit to the pattern designer when the quilt is shown.

    is it possible that the picture that we all love of admin was taken 40 years ago? and this really IS the way he looks now? LOL. or, he doesn't want us to know what he looks like now because someone used the stalker word?
    and he's incognito?

    as to the copyright issue, i think that if you sell or show a made item, you have to give credit to the designer. i think shadow or moonpi or patrice addressed this issue. i'll try to find it.

    Thank you for sharing the link. I, too, would find it hard to believe that someone who worked hard on creating a pattern with intent to sell would discourage another quilter from sharing the finished product....that is, the quilt, itself. By sharing the quilt made from a pattern, you encourage and inspire others to go out and buy the same pattern, thereby perpatuating higher sales / profit.

    Each time I make a quilt and share it on ths Internet (or elsewhere), I do share which pattern I've used and who created it. As you've said, it is just good manners to give credit where credit is due.

    I like it when you women stalk me, and all you've seen are my feet.

    As far as copyright, you can post your own work that was derived from a copyright pattern. You cannot post the pattern and you cannot give it away unless as below, you give all copies of the pattern away.

    As far as selling a copyright pattern, sure, as long as you give up every copy of the pattern you own. You cannot sell it as yours though, you must acknowledge who owns the copyright. This is like if you bought a photograph from a famous photographer. He/she owns the copyright to the photo, you own the copy. If you find some fool who will pay you 10x what you payed for it, you can sell it. Can't make a copy of it though.

    Yes, just like calling a Scot English. As for the accent, we sound very similar to the Canadians apparently.
