Cottage Licenses?
Anyone here have one? Can you tell me a bit about it and your experience?

I am considering goign through littleturtleknits or woolywonder to knit soaker and such, but it makes me nervous to drop that much money without really understanding what will happen afterward.

Thanks!
Christina

I guess it really depends if you think their patterns are that great and if you think you'll be able to sell enough soakers and such to offset the $250 fee.

It's basically a license to sell things you've made with a copyrighted pattern...a la http://woolywonder.com/licensing.php

You can read about it here

Basically, it allows you to use their patterns to make items for sale.

I know you can't sell things from copywrited patterns that you get for free, but I was wondering if you could from patterns that you buy. I wanted to sell a few things at the farmer's market.

Depends on the copyright terms -- LTK patterns are pricey but you still have to pay the licensing fee if you want to knit & sell. It's always best to check with the copyright holder. :D

It all depends on the terms of use {if specified} by the designer/copyright holder. I have a terms of use page on my website that covers all of my designs whether they are free or paid. When in doubt, contact the copyright holder.
