Copyright laws and the patterns we use
So I have been reading up on the copyright laws and specifically about the patterns we use to make the stuff we do.
Why? 1) Because I use other people's patterns and 2) I sell the stuff I make. So I have a deep interest in the legalities of it.
A lot of pattern writers forbid others from selling the stuff that is made from their patterns. Some even go to the extreme of charging to be able to sell the items made aka a "cottage license".  
A good example of this is Debbie Stoller. She authored the famous book "Stitch and Bitch, The Happy Hooker". Her pattern for the Fat Bottom Bag is awesome, however many people soon found out upon contacting her that she does NOT want the bags made from her pattern sold. RIDICULOUS! Like she can stop millions of people from selling them and legally she can't. She wrote the pattern yes, but that is where the copyright stops.  
That's right, in a nutshell the copyright of a pattern stops with the pattern. It does not carry over to works made fro

I have been crocheting for more than 13 years. I learned with just a how to book and one hook. It didn't take long for me to catch on and catch the crochet bug! I'm a yarn addict. I can't seem to go to a store that I don't walk out with at least one skein of yarn lol.

I am married and a mom to a 19 year old Daughter. We have 3 cats and a little dog. I am an ordained minister.

If you see something in my deviations that you might interested in owning, please contact me. I do take commissions.
