PLEASE RESPECT ME AND MY WORK AND DO NOT COPY IT
I am a Freelance Textile Designer who is making a living from my work, so if you are interested in any of my designs shown on my website please contact me directly. All are for sale and I am available for Freelance projects.
However, just in case you didn’t know about the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988:
Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988
The Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, is the current UK copyright law. It gives the creators of literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works the right to control the ways in which their material may be used. The rights cover: Broadcast and public performance, copying, adapting, issuing, renting and lending copies to the public. In many cases, the creator will also have the right to be identified as the author and to object to distortions of his work.
Copyright arises when an individual or organisation creates a work, and applies to a work if it is regarded as original, and exhibits a degree of labour, skill or judgement. For freelance or commissioned work, rights will usually belong to the author of the work, unless there is an agreement to the contrary, (i.e. in a contract for service).
I keep sealed and dated paper records of all my work as well as computer backups. It will be a lot cheaper for you in the long run if you contact me to buy the rights to my design than copying it.
