What is your COPYRIGHT POLICY?

 


I'm putting this at the top of this page because this is the question I get asked the MOST by fellow home sewers like me who want to make some money doing something they LOVE - i.e. making softies!

So I have a created web page explaining my Copyright Policy and Terms of Use, especially relating to selling items made from the Funky Friends Factory sewing patterns.  If you want to use the Funky Friends Factory sewing patterns to make toys to sell please read this page to
find out about the copyright terms and conditions for making Funky Friends softies for sale.

Funky Friends Factory Copyright Policy:

Copyright © 2019 Funky Friends Factory.
The Funky Friends Factory patterns, concepts and logo are protected by international copyright protection: It is acceptable to make these toys yourself for personal use and gifts. It is acceptable to make these toys yourself to sell in limited numbers if the toy is labeled/tagged ‘Made from a Funky Friends Factory pattern’. If you are selling the toys online – EACH online listing MUST state that the toy is made from a Funky Friends Factory Pattern. It is unacceptable to mass-produce the toys or to reproduce the patterns.

I have faith that you will respect the long hours and creativity that has gone into producing the Funky Friends Factory patterns.
Many thanks,

COMMERCIAL USE: Can you sell toys you sew using the Funky Friends Factory Patterns?

If you want to sell the toys you sew using the Funky Friends Factory sewing patterns, I am happy for you to do this if you make them yourself from start to finish, and in limited numbers. I believe that, whether you sew them by hand or sewing machine, you’d hardly be able to call this mass-producing the toys! So you have my full permission to make the toys yourself, and sell them in limited numbers. All I would ask is that the toy is labelled or tagged with the following -  ‘Made from a new.funkyfriendsfactory.com pattern’, and if you are selling the toys online – EACH online listing MUST state that the toy is made from a Funky Friends Factory Pattern. It is unacceptable to mass-produce the toys or to reproduce the patterns.

I think this is a win-win situation for both of us! – I am happy for you to make some money selling toys made from my patterns and as a ‘one-woman, home-based craft business’ it would really help me if you could help ‘spread the word’ about my pattern website in this way!
Thank you, in advance!
Pauline

Can you sell the toys you sew to raise money for CHARITY?

Any sale of items sewn using the Funky Friends Factory Patterns is COMMERCIAL USE - (see above). If you want to sell a few toys for a charity, once again, I feel that, whether you sew them yourself, by hand or sewing machine, you’d hardly be able to call this mass-producing the toys! So it is perfectly acceptable to make or sell the toys in limited numbers for charitable purposes. Once again, I would ask is that the toy is labelled or tagged ‘Made from a new.funkyfriendsfactory.com pattern’.

However if you are wanting to make a LARGE number of toys to sell for a charity cause  – please take a look at the Funky Friends Factory Billion Bears Drive, and if you want to get involved with this, please let me know the name of the charity and how many bears you’ve made… we have a long way to go!!!! :)
