People on Etsy scanning patterns from major companies and selling pdfs of them? That's really brazen. I saw one "store" there with 556 positive feedback and I recognize many, many patterns from older books I've used (exact same pictures). Amazing how she's selling these patterns for a little over $2 each. That's over $1100 she made just off of people who have left feedback and no telling how many people bought patterns from her without leaving feedback. I believe this is known as copyright infringement. I'm really not a member of the crochet posse, this one instance really amazed me in it's flagrant theft.
