Default Pattern copyright laws, just FYI

So I recently bough a few patterns with the intent to maybe make some pretty things and sell them. The author of this pattern stated in the pattern that no product could be sold, specially not in the internet and that it was for personal use only....hmmm, interesting, since look at what I found http://www.tabberone.com/Trademarks/...Patterns.shtml

It seems to me like she can't really do that. Just tought I would share in case this apply to you as well.

I know! Its very helpful! I had someone get mad because I had made something from a free tutorial a while back and actually kept making it when requested. It became kind of popular. Long story short, the tut owner emailed me and said "I have specific rules for noone to make things for resale from this free tut." How she knew was because I commented on her blog that I loved it and was going to give it a try and I guess she visits everyones blog that post comments. {Weird} Ok, fine, No big deal. I made some changes in the way mine looked and sold that. Wasnt good enough for her. Who cares? I no longer post pics online and barely post to my blog, etsy or anything else for this reason. To many internet moniters out there. Seriously, How do they have time to live life and patrol the internet too?{I dont have that kind of time} And I was also thinking once something is sold or an item is made from a pattern or tut, that finished item cant be owned, copyrighted, trademarked, or whatever word you want to give it, by someone else if that makes sense. Im going to read that article again and do a little research because I would love to know the actual rules to this one.

That's crazy!!

I've been meaning to look this up for awhile...I looked into purchasing some crochet patterns (before I decided to make my own) and the person's site that I was looking at states that you must purchase a cottage license to sell goods made with those patterns, and I saw people really were! I was wondering if that was legal (knowing the whole backstory behind "copyrighting" tutus/color combos/etc)...but I've been working *way* too much to look any further into it! I had heard before that you must change a pattern 10% or something to that effect (that was the rumor anyway), but have never flat out seen where it's all a bunch of mumbo jumbo.

OP, thanks again!!

no problem I glad I can help!
aarnold2002- I think we were looking at the same stuff, and I thought "no way, there is not way this is legal". In the article it even seems to point that the instructions of how to make something cannot be copyrighted either. Not like I would go and sell something that someone so carefully wrote down (that will not be honest), but I thought it was interesting.

I'm really hoping this isn't my tut. It says you can sell the Finished product, so I am assuming it's not, but I know you bought one so now I'm nervous

Yeah, it would be awful to sell someones manual or pattern but I dont understand telling someone they cant sell what they make from a pattern. If you dont want it reproduced, dont put it out there. I can understand if you have a label like Chanel or Gucci but they dont sell patterns of their purses. If you sell a pattern, what do you expect people are going to do with it? What they have done for years... And thanks! This was helpful!
