I say flattery. If not for capitalism we would live in a world of cooperation instead corporation.
I just saw one of my ideas in a design. I will alsways know that I did it first. and I did it using makeshift designs!
I am afraid that I would be a little upset. I think you were correct in writing to them. I hope you will get an answer
I'd call it flattery as that is healthier than upset. I commonly see copies or small variation in embroidery designs that reflect the orignal. The problem is that I usually have no idea who originated the design.
If you feel upset, you could buy the design and see if it is copied or different in some way. If you feel it was copied, you could ask her to remove it. Which them begs the question: How do you enforce compliance? Disney has a lot of attorneys who enforce their designs. Most of us don't.
So, I still would go with flattered and spare yourself the headache of enforcement.
I've emailed them about in in a friendly way, but had no answer.
Sorry, Sue. I've seen the keyboard idea repeatedly. Maybe just great minds think alike??
Be flattered. You know more about music.
Well, it is a zip purse featuring piano keys....but your's is much more detailed! Perhaps you inspired them.
It is also called "Octave" but only has eight notes.....
I hope whoever it is is not receiving any compensation. I get cranky when I see all the designs on Etsy and Pinterest that have obviously been copied. It's not fair! Love Chris
