Dear Julie,
You have my full support...not only emotionally, but if I can help with your attorney fees, I would like to make a financial contribution.

It angers me that my correspondence was treated so cavalierly; that I am not respected and that my opinion is not respected, by this editor/publication.

I have a copy of my email to the editor that I will send for your records! The knitting ring will stand by you!!!

I'm sorry. I had really hoped that it was just a mistake or something and that they would be apologetic. That's so terrible. I'm glad you're not just letting this go, it sounds like that she and her magazine need to learn a lesson. And you're just the knitter to teach them! As I said before, we're all behind you :)

Apparently they aren't deleting all or our letters. I just an email from them explaining their side of things. Basically the argument is that she had never seen the booga patterns before and there are many changes. I think they are missing the point that they were concerned enough in the first place to contact Julie, and an agreement was made which they did not live up to. I don't know the ins and outs of copyright law to argue that the patterns are different, but it seems they entered a written contract which they broke.

Okay.. IF they had NEVER seen the bag... as they claim.. Then how did the know to contact Julie in the first place and make her an attractive offer?

2+2 does not equal 5 and as far as I am concerned, it only goes to show us that they think of the Net Blogging Community as a bunch of simpleton's.

Some of us might have been born at night, but not last night.

Ding round 2 try again.

I also just recieved an email which I have forwarded to Julie... I'd say a covering of butts is happening.. and this girl is obviously feeling the heat from above....

My best to you in getting some sort of satisfaction in this, Julie. Too bad you might end up being the poster girl... I'm no lawyer, but you seem to have favorable correspondence -- she was worried about it enough to contact you earlier (and I'm sorry, but I don't think varying the number of cast-on stitches and other small changes makes it a different pattern). From personal experience, corporations usually err on the CYA side of things, even if it costs them -- and all that was needed here is credit where credit is due -- rather than the sticking of head in sand/fingers in ears while deleting emails. Good luck.

I looked at the pic in the mag its a BOOGA BAG!

I like the letters to the supporters of the magaizine. That really makes people think when there money goes away.

What a witch! Actually I think at this point everyone should be writing to Somerset, the publication company that publishes this magazine, and with a cc: to this woman!

BrendaS

Not only does she have a reputation to uphold.. but she has a magazine to sell as well. She's doing herself a HUGE disservice by not giving credit where credit is due.

You, on the other hand, have your patterns and creations to protect.. so you should do whatever it takes to make sure you get at LEAST an apology letter, and a an apology in the mag too.
