I addressed this issue in Crochetville a few days back.
I was contacted by another member of that forum about my patterns being passed around. She informed me that my Floppy Friends 1 & 2, were being sent out. I have asked her for more info, however, she has not been back on c'ville, nor has she answered my emails.
PLEASE, if you have any information on who is sending these out, LET ME KNOW.
I will reward you with free patterns. I am not above bribing people.
Seriously, though, passing out these patterns is NOT acceptable. I feel that I am being more than fair with posting free patterns. Not only are most of my patterns free, you can make and sell whatever you make from my patterns. This goes for both my free patterns, as well as any purchased.
Again, please let me know if you have any info on this illegal activity.
