Careful what you knit …

Those on the Knitting Stitchers group know that I occasionally throw up links there for interesting knitting patterns.

One of the more recent I referred to was a site which had free designs for Dr Who creatures including the Adipose …..

Well I just saw this:

Apparently the BBC have threatened legal action against the knitter and she has removed her designs from her site.

Note: she was not selling the designs – she had put them out free to world.  What does this mean for other knitters – or cross stitchers  – or any other fan-based work?

A very interesting article even if I didn’t quite follow all the legal details ….
