Rambling thoughts on copyright and other stuff.

I've been listing on ebay again - more shuttles and some tatted pieces. Love doing ebay but it will shortly be coming to an end as the gardening and Spring arrive (hopefully).
I ordered a new cupboard for my stash of threads and beads on Sunday. The one I've been using has shrunk!!! YES, it has!!! It's the damp patch in the corner that's caused it. NO, I haven't been buying too much stuff!!!! That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
A design that I'm really excited about is nearing fruition. No, I'm not sharing pictures this time. It's been a long time getting finished and I so want this one to have the 'wow' factor!!!
Mind, after the 'discussions' on HBT I'm not sure I really want to share any more. Somebody says it's fine to take anybody's work, alter the way it's written and then publish under their name. This has been done to me and it SUCKS BIG TIME. It hurts like hell. The only reason for people doing this must be because they haven't an original thought in their head or they want to gain 'fame and fortune' off other folks's backs. What I cannot understand is that people think it's fine to do this and to buy a book to share the patterns with others. Just before Christmas I did look into doing a book of patterns and self publishing but if this is the 'way of the world' then I shan't bother.

I beg your pardon? I didn't quite catch what you said.
