Jul. 30th, 2014 @ 08:59 pm Rip off of Luna Wolf pattern/tutorial set
Current Mood: sadsad
EDIT: The pattern/tutorial set has now been removed from Etsy! :) It's still on her own website and on Pinterest though, so I will be chasing those up next.

EDIT 2: Relisted on Esty with a different picture and a few edits, but still using my words. Reported. I have yet to determine if the downloadable product being sold is the same infringement. https://www.etsy.com/listing/194530297/cloth-pad-pattern-slim-design-5-sizes


Hi everyone,

It has been brought to my attention that the pattern and tutorial set I created in 2008, and still sell through my website today, has been ripped off by an Etsy seller called "Happy Moon Pads".

This is my original pattern and tutorial set:
http://www.lunawolf.co.uk/shop/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=492

You can see from the picture that the text on the pattern reads "Copyright Luna Wolf 2008. For personal or non profit use only."

This is the ripped off pattern:

https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/186843414/cloth-pad-patterns-5-sizes-and-tutorial?show_panel=true

As you can see, it is identical, but the text pertaining to Luna Wolf has been removed. Her price also undercuts mine. Unbelievably, she is also selling a licence which enables the buyer to sell pads made FROM MY PATTERNS - as long as they give credit to HER SHOP!

PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PATTERN/TUTORIAL SET FROM HAPPY MOON PADS! This is MY work, for which I can provide the original hand-drafted patterns if anybody would like to see them. Please do not give your money to somebody who is making money dishonestly off of somebody else's hard work and creativity.

I have contacted Etsy, but whether they will do anything about it is anyone's guess.

Thanks for reading.

Vicky
