If you want a needlework industry tomorrow, protect it today by honoring the copyrights of the designers that create the charts.
Great information. I am a designer and work hard on mine. I have not started selling them but have now started watermarking them as one design I saw on someone's Facebook profile pic. I was disturbed by it as it was one I didn't even offer as a freebie, just was showing a friend. I think more atention should be given to copyright abuse.
