I just searched for a copyright on a pattern I just acquired. Copyright emblem is on the pattern along with "all rights reserved" by the designer. I searched pattern name and designer's name and found neither.

The 64-pg booklet arrived today! Sixty-five baby things to knit, crochet, and sew. Bibs, toys, blankets, and clothing galore. It's amazing how relevant they are even for our 21st Century.

Anyway, my coveted baby hoodie is in there!

On the bottom of page 2, the Forward and Contents page, there are 4 lines of copyright language.

Copyrightę1959, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973 by The McCall Pattern Company. All rights reserved. Printed and published in the U.S.A. by the McCall Pattern Company, 230 Park Avenue, New York, N.Y. 10017

So that's it.
I think perhaps this booklet began publication in 1959, or parts of it. This particular booklet was published in 1973, which renews all the designs copyright, I believe.

Not one single individual designer is named on any of the designs.

Therefore, whereas I would loan my booklet to my BFF who lives down the lane, I wouldn't make copies of a particular design/pattern for anyone else. If my BFF wanted to scan and print a copy of a design, and leave the booklet in my possession, I'd allow it.

And of course, I certainly wouldn't scan a pattern to a pdf doc and email it to anyone, not even my local friends. Too easy for pdf's to be widely distributed.

Anyone have anything to add?

Just to cover all bases thoroughly I'd email McCalls with the pertinent info and question just for your own peace of mind.

Yeah. Plus they kind of left you hanging with no answer!

Congratulations on your acquisition!


That's worth celebrating!

I'm just glad that if your back were turned and someone copied something from it w/o your knowledge you wouldn't be held responsible. Good grief! It really is a shame to have such a cute baby sweater pattern fade off into oblivion. They should make such patterns available online, free or for a small fee.

That's a great idea, GG! If they just charged $2 they'd make more than they are now! And think how good for McCalls it would be if they were known to put out of print patterns online for everyone to enjoy.

I love GrumpyGramma - she's very often the voice of reason in a very murky pond.
