Pattern copyrights and licensing
All our patterns sold from 2014 and forward are personally licensed to the customer.
This is so You know that Your copy is a legal one and Your project is legal.
At the top of each pattern page is the name and address of the licensee who may use the pattern.
The pattern may not be traded, sold or handled in any way that breaks the international copyright laws.
If you are using a non licensed pattern from 2014 or later, or a pattern licensed with someone else’s name you should contact us in order to make your project legal.
We work together with international copyright agencies to prevent illegal patterns and to get compensated for copyright infringements. It is very clearly stated on the front page of Golden Kite patterns that they are copyright protected and what the fines are for violation.
If you buy a pattern from Bon Bon (Russia and Ukraine) or Jewel (eBay) the licensing might be different.
Patterns bought or otherwise retrieved from any other places are not legal and should be licensed in order to make the project legal.
Thank you and Happy Stitching!
