Thoughts on Pattern Piracy:
If you post a pattern online without the designer’s knowledge and consent,
…that is stealing.
If you use such a pattern,
…that is receiving stolen goods.
If your repost or repin such a pattern,…that is aiding and abetting after the fact.
If you find a pattern online check the source to make sure the designer meant to have it posted as a free pattern. If you can't tell, it may be an illegal copy. Please pin responsibly
