Default No Fabric Boycott Needed - Inform Yourself

Before everyone gets upset over the selvage statements, please inform yourself of the true meaning of the selvage or bolt end statements, such as, "licensed fabric," "personal use only," or "non-commercial home use only". Today, I spoke with the owner of a business, a LQS owner, and did some research. This site is boiled down into simple terms that we should all be able to understand. http://www.tabberone.com/Trademarks/...edFabric.shtml If, after reading this link, you still want to avoid the purchase of these fine fabrics, O.K. That will just leave more for those of us who understand that we are not breaking the law.

This was a good subject to discuss because there was obviously some misunderstanding. If you were struck with panic, and spread the words to friends or other sites, please go back and correct your statements before we are accused of starting an urban legend.

If your LQS, discount store, thrift shop, internet sales, or wherever, sells fabric, you (the buyer) are safe. Buy what you want, make whatever you want, sell it where ever you want and let the stores continue to stock the fabrics which they think will move in their area.

Thanks for posting this website. It is good to see documented information, although some people will still prefer to spread the "sky is falling" ideas.

I wonder how this affects the lawsuit brought against Emily Ceir? She and her book publisher are being sued by a designer for using a fabric in a quilt pattern book. Fortunately for Emily, the publisher is taking care of the legal costs of fighting the lawsuit. The fabric manufacturer actually donated the fabric to Emily!

Using the fabric in a book could be considered a straight copyright violation because the fabric has been reproduced...same as if you were to post a photo of it here. It is the reproduction of the fabric, not the use of it in a quilt, that is in question I believe, and that is copyright law, not trademark law.
