Last week I posted a blog (https://sudukc.wordpress.com/2014/09/29/plagiarism-it-is-illegal/) and mistakenly called it plagiarism; it is copyright infringement. I have corrected the post but I stand by what I said. Both are illegal and both make my blood boil!
This week I had someone tell me my baseball was cute and they thought they would copy it. I have no legal rights to the Royals emblem I did not buy the licensing. But it still is my design adaptation and even though I do not intend to sell this design copying it is not legal.
A great article on copyright has been written by Mary Ann Jones & Matthew J. Booth for Needlepoint Now. If you would like to read it, it can be found here: http://www.needlepointnow.com/advertising/copyright/
