Episode notes

Drea leads the episode to talk about making pattern designs in terms of when it's inspiration or when it's blatant theft. Meg starts the discussion with what you might be able or not be able to copyright, considering stitches can be thousands of years old. Jess makes an analogy comparing piano keys & notes with stitches & designs. Tina makes comparisons and thoughts based on her own pattern designs, like the Seed Dot Beanie, how she put a copyright on her patterns as a copyright of the arrangement of the pattern itself, rather than the stitches themselves. Jess and Tina discuss the idea of direct, word for word copying of the pattern versus coincidentally put together similar stitches to create a design. It definitely gets murky, and the topic is controversial; join the cast for this topic and then be sure to voice your opinion!
