Title: PicToWeave and Copyright
Post by Owen Dare on Sep 12th, 2007 at 7:25am
Users of PicToWeave are restricted by copyright laws.
You cannot use the work of another person or create a derivative work without their permission.

Therefore you are in breach of copyright if you take a copyright photo or other image and create a weave pattern from it without the permission of the copyright holder.
Likewise, unauthorized conversion of commercially available weave patterns in other formats, either electronic or hard copy, for use in PicToWeave is a breach of copyright.

Just because you see something on the internet does not make it public domain.
Nor is it a legal requirement to display a copyright symbol in order to claim copyright.
