I thought about this for a while and decided that the Highwayman pattern really needed some kind of included copyright information. So I put this on there. Since I don’t plan to make and sell armwarmers, I have no problem if anyone else does – it doesn’t take money away from me. However, it’s important to give me credit for the design. Here’s the copyright notice I came up with:
Important Copyright Information:
This pattern is © 2007 The Knitting Pirate. You may make copies for your own personal use, but you may not sell copies of the pattern. You may sell the armwarmers you make provided that credit is given to the Knitting Pirate for the design. If you have any questions about what you can or can’t do with this pattern, please feel free to contact the Knitting Pirate.
I wonder why most pattern designers don’t want people selling objects made from their pattern?
Thursday night I saw the Yarn Harlot at Borders. As soon as I pull the pictures off my camera, I’ll post them with a recap of the evening. It was fantastic!
