The Nerve!

Can you believe this? Someone is actually trying to SELL copies of my sushi pattern that was on MagKnits last month. How rude! Beyond the obvious copyright stuff, there's the bigger issue in my mind of trying to charge people for something that is being offered free. Believe me I'm doing something about it, and thank you to Kerrie for letting me know!
Edited to add: I looked at some of the other offerings in this seller's ebay store- they are all photocopies of knitting patterns!!!!!
Edited again to add: It's down now. I'm still mad though.

Here is where you report a listing violation. I'm going to go ahead and chime in. This is ridiculous!

Here it is.

I hope they pull her account! There is no excuse in the world for her behaviour.

That's insane!! I hope she loses her account with ebay.

Me again. I thought about sending an "ask the seller" and asking why she's selling patterns that are on the internet for free.

I had a friend who had somebody copy her own pattern from Mag Knits and somebody else sent it to Knit 1 Magazine and published it.

Just plain awful!!

Woah. That is totally messed up!

Well, it looks like she ended that auction. I wish they'd pulled it! She's someone to watch.

Very strange- I saw that she was offering that free fruit pattern from Jimmy Beans too. There's not much that I hate more than people trying to take advantage of others ignorance. *cough* yarn shop that is selling Knit Picks at twice the price *cough*

Glad you were able to remove it.
