This article, again sent by my brother, John, illustrates Mr. Doctorow’s thinking on the copyright issue more clearly, and I have to say, I agree with it entirely. I think the broohaha over the fabric in question was the confusion over personal use v. corporate use, because of an ill-written IP notice. Heather Ross clearly does not want to limit the uses of her fabric to her retail customers, she says so in the long version of the disclaimer. But the seller, Reprodepot.com, didn’t use that for some reason, hence the controversy.

    if you press the ‘don’t agree’ button on sewzanne’s site you can’t purchase the fabric.

    that’s not a suggestion that’s a requirement. you have to agree to buy the fabric. if you don’t agree to the terms you can’t buy it. Or you can lie i guess

    i agree, it sucks they did that to sewzannes small business. no one elses.
