hands off?

For the second time this week, and for goodness sake it’s only Wednesday, I’ve heard of a big name – and I mean big name – UK shop having items in their shops that may have been copied from a designer who has had success with her design.

 

Both these designers earn their living from these designs, and are tiny wheels in the scheme of things, but it’s their livelihood and their reputations that these huge shops are taking, not just their hard work.

 

If someone pinched my ideas for buttons and the like I think I’d feel violated, they are my items, and it’s my time, and effort, and thinking power that comes up with my designs, making, and firing.

 

Designers, don’t pinch other peoples designs, it’s not nice. And shops, do your homework before using designs.

Rant over.
