I have been crafting for some time, but never sold anything.
Now that I am taking on a new venture of starting a website displaying and selling some of mine and other's works.
I am wondering what the per say rules are when selling some crafts you make.
Mainly wondering about getting ideas from here (the best site I have found in AGES, by the way LOL) If I see a tute of something I like, am I 'allowed' to make it and sell it?? I am leaning towards thinking Yes, because things are not copyrighted etc. and Alot if it is just 'winging' it, but I do not wanna step on toes if I am not allowed to!
Also what about taken the basic idea from someone elses craft project and making something like it myself?
Is a person 'allowed' to look though say etsy or something... think "hey I could make something like that" then sell it??
oh confusion in my head...
must stop thinking!!
thanks for the help
