I can't believe they did this with such well-known patterns, too. I don't know you personally, Jennie, but I've run into your web site a number of times, even before joining craftster, etc. Unbelievably foolish of them, in my opinion. Hope you're able to slam it to them in court. Rah!

Not only is this an insult to you Jenny, but really a smack in the face for all Craftsters - it kind of devalues the love and the time that we put into making something by hand when someone rips off the idea and mass produces it in some really cheesy way - and no offense, but that shirt you showed was not as cute as something any one of us could make! I agree - if someone loves your designs (and who wouldn't?) then they should pay you for your intellectual property, or else design their own stuff. That is only right!

I will certainly be buying more patterns in an attempt to support you, and then buying even more and giving them as gifts. And I will also be posting this on my personal blog and working with the webzine I write for to see if they will run a story. Through our grassroots efforts, we can certainly bring these villains DOWN.

evil corporate monsters - its not surprising that corporations think they can get away with anything - they're so used to using what is basically slave labour that they seem to think they can do whatever they like - i hope your case helps to teach them that they can't... good luck  jenny, and i'll certainly keep an eye out for any designs that make it over here
edited to say that i jsut pre-ordered your book

I'm sick and tired of this happening to people.  I have a friend who you all know for sure.  He's the voice on many major commercials.  If you go to his site, he's done EVERYTHING from local spots to corporate, to main stream stuff.  He's the voice on Nova. 

My boyfriend took pictures of microphone our friend owned that he uses for voice overs.  Some company in India took the pictures and is using them on their site.  COMPLETE FRAUD.  They're using them to their financial advantage. 

Whatever I can do to help I will.  I for one and tired of this happening.  Copyright infringement is a serious concern that needs to be addressed.

amie:  that sucks!  i bet you could send them a simple cease and desist and they would remove the pictures right away.  i have had people steal my pictures before too.  but mine were actually pictures of me.  it's very wierd, someone was pretending to be me, using my pictures and such.  i sent out a cease and desist and it stopped right away.

My friend did that and they never responded.  He's since created a new website that makes it so you can't copy ANYTHING.  Everything is locked down.  Thank heavens!

If you haven't done anything yet- Definitely do a cease and desist...

Grrrrr!  That's irritating  Angry  I'll be doing a study on the page you linked with the photos of your patterns and keep on the lookout for any copying.  Keep up the fight!
