So it's been a while since I've posted?!? Over the past two month several people have infringed on my copyright laws and I know this is an on-going issue, but you DO NOT have permission to take my patterns and post them on the internet or have on-line classes.
What is copyright infringement?
As a general matter, copyright infringement occurs when a copyrighted work is reproduced, distributed, performed, publicly displayed, or made into a derivative work without the permission of the copyright owner.
I know you might think that Italy or Germany is far enough away, but it's not. So please respect the work that I put into creating these amazing Trolls...........or one day they'll be no more.
Leaving off the tail and belly button, changing the clothing does not make it your design. It will always be MY design and my pattern. And if I hear that you have infringed on my copyrights, I WILL take action!!! The above Trolls were done in Germany in an on-line class and even though changes were made they are still very recognizable to my pattern?!? This is what I mean about copyright infringement!
