OOOPS! Something NOT to do on this site!
 
:oops: I saw Auburn's post on what to make for someone who is seriously ill, and I posted directions for an afghan from a leaflet without considering copyright. The leaflet is 10+ years old, and the company website has a completely different version of the afghan up now, but I still could have gotten KnittingHelp in a lot of trouble.:doh:

Thankfully, Dustina was on the ball, spotted my brainfart, and deleted the instructions..then let me know why :fingerwag: . I reposted a similar but not copyrighted design.

They say if you're smart you learn from your mistakes...but the wise learn from the mistakes of others. Just thought I'd post this for all the wise folks who visit this site :psst: .

This could happen to any of us! Mistakes arise from good intentions sometimes, which is exactly what happened to you. But this is what our mods are for, to remind us of the rules and to fix our mistakes. :thumbsup:

Besides, what would the mods do if we never made any mistakes? They would get bored! :teehee:

Copyright is a touchy issue. Here's a Copyright FAQ for Knitters that you might find helpful.

It's not just this site, it's a no-no on any public forum.

Thank you Jan.

That Copyright FAQ for Knitters has moved. I did find it quite helpful.

Your heart was in the right place, not like you were going to be making money off of the pattern, but I guess it's always good to review the copyright laws.
