Copyright is quite a “HOT” topic lately. Copyright law is there for a reason, to protect the creative works of designers and artists. It protects very specific things about one’s designs. Of course, there is a certain amount of creative crossover when it comes to quilting inspiration. There’re only so many blocks, shapes, borders, colors, and ways to spin them all around. Yes, two people can create very similar designs without ever seeing one another’s work….BUT…
And this….is a blatant disregard not only for copyright but for the time the designer put into creating her lovely quilt. Clearly the center of the quilt was removed and text put in. There is NO WAY the creator came up with this exact border and fabric choice independently. The creator went as far as to stamp their name on the image and claim it as their own creative works. Really?!
Please stop and think about what you’re doing. Stop the abuse of copyrights.
Take the time to ask for permission from designers and authors. You’d be surprised at how many will grant it if you only ask first.
