I received another request for my San Francisco 49ers afghan pattern on Ravelry. Once again, I informed the inquirer that I cannot sell without violating copyright law. Then I thought: contact the team and verify before cutting of another source of income. Here is what I was able to write them, using the website contact form (300 word maximum)
I created an afghan based on your logo. I have many people asking me about obtaining the pattern. Would sale of the pattern violate copyright laws? I am not a lawyer, nor can I afford one. Can I sell my pattern? See afghan here.
I also Tweeted the message and put if on their Facebook page.
Making good progress on the Oakland Raiders afghan…
