I was poking around on Etsy earlier today and saw a seller that had one of Jennifer Laing's books available as a PDF that you could download once you paid.  HUH?  They have GOT to be kidding!!!!!  These books are not only out of print, but covered by trademark and copyright laws.  Same issue with patterns.  If anyone has books and/or patterns they have made up for sale, you might want to check and see if some dumb bunny has taken it upon themselves to turn them into PDFs and sell them on Etsy.  I turned in the ones I caught, and they have been removed.  At least Etsy seems to take copyrights and trademarks seriously, as they should.

wow!  I can't believe the nerve of some people. I've thought about making some patterns or a book for sale but I'm worried something like that would happen.  I'm glad Etsy removed it.

I've seen many Japanese ones on etsy that have been copied into PDF files.
