This is starting to appear on a few of the crafting groups on FB, especially after somebody posted about how they've had a lot of their crafting stuff confiscated (including a sewing machine and the like), their page and their eBay shop closed down and been fined 900 for breaching copyright.  Makes an interesting read and pretty much confirms what some of us have been saying for years .... since imag-e-nation forum days for sure!

Admin - you might want to pin it somewhere for people to refer to as and when Smiley

Here's the story (pic) referred to above (hope it's big enough to read)

Yes, it is big enough to read, and just underpins all we have been saying here for years.

I cannot understand why she had her sewing machine and scissors confiscated. Computer, yes, as it probably had files that belonged to someone else on it. If it was a computerised sewing machine with embroidery patterns likewise, then I guess so.

Bottom line, however you came by it, if you don't have a license to sell it on then you can't.
