Can anyone comment about copyright on dress patterns?
We often see garments shown in patterns that are no longer produced by the pattern companies.
Is it infringement of the pattern company’s copyright to make a copy of someone else’s copy of a now-obsolete pattern and use it for one’s own, non-commercial use?
What would be the legal implications of asking across the Internet whether someone has a particular pattern and is prepared to copy it?
Are there any web sites that buy/sell patterns?
