Thoughts on Pattern Piracy

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


  1. Totally agree with you

  2. A simple guide, well said. Some folks are not aware that just because a pattern is on Pinterest (or Google+) doesn't mean it's there legally.
