:? I was playing with EQ7 and thought I'd make a Christmas design using two simple blocks. It never got further then the EQ program. I saved the pattern and forgot about it. I saw this:

http://www.piecenquilt.blogspot.com/

That's the exact same pattern I came up with! Now if I had made this quilt and did all the things that copyright said I could not do with a published pattern how could I have proved it was my own design? What if I wanted to send my pattern to anyone free who asks for it? What if I wanted to post it online? To beat all it's almost the exact colors. Now this quilt will be copyrighted once it's published. If anyone wants to see the block construction I used pm me. Here is the one I designed.

I'm not upset someone has the same design and it will be published. Good for her! Just that if I wanted to copy, give, or post the one I honestly designed myself I could have been targeted as a thief without knowing anything about it. I loved the machine quilting on the other one. Isn't it beautiful?

Really pretty design....as far as the rest...I am SO confused?? Why couldn't you have copyrighted it back when you designed it?? I must be missing something :/

I think a lot of the copyright issues we see are over who got their version copyrighted first. :(

I never intended to copyright it. I like designing patterns on EQ7 for the fun of it and giving them to others. That's the point. If the pattern is copyrighted by someone who came by the same design honest, how can I give copies of mine away?

When you saved it in EQ7, it is dated. That proves it:)

and now it would look like a copy, right? Can you give it a significant twist?
