I thought I'd list direct links to the six posts that Sig has written on Copyrights for Beaders (My apologies for those of you who've received emails on the subject - just trying to group it all together - and this one will be my last, I swear!). For those of you who are just now checking in: If you've ever had questions or wondered whether your work might be "toeing the line", then be sure to read her discussion of important copyright issues facing beaders. Remember, Sig is not a lawyer but she does have significant experience in this area, so she's a great resource for us all!
