Borrowed from Melidomi and the knitting board:
Is it ok to post a copyrighted pattern here on Craftster?
Only if you wrote it yourself. If the pattern is already on the web, post a link. If it's in a book or magazine, post the name and author (and issue if it's a magazine). You can post an excerpt if you have a question about it, but don't post the whole thing.
Can I sell stuff I made from someone else's pattern?
Usually no, unless your have author's or publisher's permission.
I'm glad you liked my pattern, and appreciate your business, however I would like to kindly remind you that in the listing for the pattern where it is sold, and included in the actual pattern itself is a statement to the effect that it's greater than great to make these dolls as gifts or for yourself, (which I'm glad that you made it for your sister), but they are not to be made and sold.
Just a quick reminder, this little dinosaur boy and his pattern is not to be copied and reproduced for monetary purposes, I'd love if you made as many as you liked for yourself or to give as gifts, but please do not make them and sell them. Thanks!
Additionally- the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 United States License that is stated on the pattern itself indicates that it is not to be used for commercial purposes.
I'd appreciate if you'd remove my doll pattern from your craigslist offer to make dolls. http://killeen.craigslist.org/art/468936323.html
. It's disappointing, that my wishes as the designer are being ignored, and frustrating enough that it makes me not want to offer my patterns. Please respect the wishes of designers.
