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:

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:


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.
