Alrighty, folks. I’m making a change in my licensing agreements. This change takes effect immediately and applies to anyone who has purchased a pattern from me at any time in the past. My new copyright statement is as follows:
This pattern is protected under federal copyright law. Making photocopies of this pattern for any purpose is strictly prohibited and is illegal. To the home sewer who has purchased this pattern at retail: you are welcome make items from this pattern for sale! Mass manufacturing of items made from this pattern is strictly prohibited.
The main reason for the change is to reduce stress in my life. Even from the very beginning I’ve always wanted this business to be fun – I’ve also wanted to run it by myself and right now the licensing program has got to go.
Do I believe pattern designers have the right to limit the use of their copyrighted work? Yes I do. Should I write a post on this? Maybe. 🙂
