Hey everyone. Due to some copyright questions, we will not be using links to PNW- Embroidery in the future until and unless moderators are satisfied that the designs follow copyright laws. Please know that we aren’t in any way judging the site. This may simply be a difference of opinion in the interpretation. This is a measure to protect Cute Embroidery to our best ability.

Thank you so much 😊

How do you make sure a site is following the laws? Hope this doesn't sound mean or snarky-just asking. Do you contact the site owner? Hugs. Nan

Yes, we contact owners of most websites. Some take the opportunity to make changes, others do not.

Good for you erring on the site of caution and what is right!! I often think copyright issues are ignored and tell my friends that I think , for example, "borrowing" a design is just the same as shop lifting.

I'm sorry. I don't mean to sound bossy. I'm just looking out for our "home site".

caricatures fall under the parody bracket that means they are considered a derivative. I looked and it seems like the deceased people are ok.

Would you post a link to your source for that information. I’ll go read it. I’m being serious here. I don’t think being deceased weighs in. 70 years after death is the date copyright protection expires.
