You have got to be kidding!


This is one of my pet peeves: copyright gone stupid! I think if you manufacture fabric you have got to expect some people will make things out of said fabric and may even sell a few. what is next copyright on blank paper do paper manufacturers need to get a cut out of the novel you have written or give you permission? what about the thread we use, or the sewing machine we produced it on?

Yeah, I've got one or two fabrics with that on them too. I think from now on, I will not purchase any that state that I may need a license - even if I don't ever sell anything.

Yeah, that irks me too. I've also seen patterns that say you can't make more than ONE item. That's absurd.

patterns that you can only make one item???? that's a hoot - try enforcing that one. I hate those stupid licenses on fabric too. when you are making an item that people use to MAKE things you have no control over it after it leaves the store. I'm thinking the fashion industry has the right idea with no copyrights.

That is crazy...I must admit I never read the fine print on the edge of fabric..perhaps I should take closer notice!
