The thieving site is DOWN!
Thank you, thank you to everyone that stepped up to support indie designers and put your foot down against the violation of selling free patterns without permission!
Thank you for not being afraid to speak up and take action. If we don’t say something to protect ourselves and our crafty friends, who will?
THUMBS UP to each and every person that stepped up to help!
Woohoo, love it when a community comes together. Nicely done everyone, now we have to watch they dont jump to another hosting company.
I’m taking a course from Harvard Law School on Copyright Law and Policy and have learned that “naming and shaming” is often a good alternative to legal action when the community is fairly close-knit and active. That’s us! Wahoo! So glad to hear it worked.
Best news I’ve heard today. So glad everything worked the way it should
That is great news. I had sent the information on to my quilt guilds as soon as I saw the email.
Jennifer – Your courageous action started the process. A pebble has to be tossed in – or perhaps a boulder – for the ripple effect to begin. Great work!
I’m so glad the site is removed! Good for you and everyone else out there who was taken advantage of!
Yay!!! Glad I got to be a part of this, awesome!!!
That is fantastic! Best news I have heard today!!
Great news and wonderful to see the internet used as a force for good!
Glad to hear it 🙂
Hurrah!! Well done
