Very true.

I don't really understand why a company would try to copyright a pattern. I understand that they do so to protect them as was stated that they owned it at the time of printing, in that case I could see them wanting some type of protection from say someone copyrighting a work that they printed then trying to sue them or extort money due to them owning a copyright on them and not getting remuneration for it at time of printing.

Seems sad when talking about something that someone with skill could look at a garment and go home and almost exactly reproduce it without a pattern. I'm assuming the gurus here with the mystical stitch wizardry are capable of this, call it zen-knitting if you will.
