they can't copyright it cause its a clothing item, they can copyright the instructions of how to make it but not the actual making of it, there are lots of people out there that make these!!!

She does stunning work! There is not even a copyright on the instructions anywhere at least not 6 months ago. My husband and I looked into this as there were a few people claiming that there was a copyright. You can ask the Copyright Office to search its records, which we did. Also, you can search the "Catalog of Copyright Entries". Which we've also done. You might want to check again since it has been 6 months since we've checked. Let us know what you find, if you decide to HTH. Also, if anyone claims to have a copyright, they should be able and willing to provide you with the information regarding such. Also I know not long ago Abby was selling her images of her criss cross tutus to other boutique owners to use on their sites. She stated at one point, "If you can't beat them, join them and make some money while at it". So she is aware and has accepted that she is not the only one creating these anymore.

This is written--
"Abby's TuTu Factory's signature criss cross tutus are being copied more and more by online boutiques. I have been sent many photos and websites of ppl stealing my designs. These designs are protected by copyright. I have created this folder of all my most popular criss cross tutus."

at the bottom of this page.

do a search on here for tutu mafia... this was a big deal a several months ago. My understanding you can not copyright a tutu.. You can copyright the name of her tutu, but not her actual tutu. So go ahead make it!!

you can only copyright the instructions that you write out but not the actual design....so funny that you just posted this because after i finish with my zebra tutus i was going to start making these .
and no i didnt see the page on FB till now, but i have seen them in other places.
