The internet is vast. It’s amazing to imagine that what I’ve written on my blog will be seen thousands of miles away only seconds after it is published. Putting a word into a search engine will result in many responses within seconds – ‘crochet free blanket patterns‘ produces almost 6 million results via Bing – and no doubt other search engines will have similar results.
There are many designers out there who offer free designs and I was shocked to read that one in particular has had many copyright problems with her instructions being sold for profit – and using her original photographs as advertising and instructions. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.
The above photo is from Tillie’s site – and the link alongside will take you there.
Please keep your eyes open – I know that this happens all over the internet – and not just for crochet. In a former creative life I was in a similar situation, and I know how very difficult it is to resolve. Feel free to reblog this post – or write your own.
