So i bought a pattern and would like to possibly sell it in the future. The pattern itself has copyright logos on it but when i searched for the pattern itself in the copyright database i was unable to find it and when i searched for the authors name and company nothing came up. As far as my understanding goes the copyright would only protect the pattern itself but not an object made from that pattern, unless they also have a copyright on the finished item as well. So legally if i made the item and then sold it i would be in the clear correct? This brings me to my next point, after i purchased the pattern they had a "License Agreement" that readsandCopyright This Pattern, the original garment and design, and any and all charts, artwork, and schematics included in the Pattern are protected by applicable copyright law as well as by international copyright treaties. You may not distribute the Pattern, in whole or in part, in any form whatsoever that is not in accordance with this license agreement. Any use of the Pattern other than as set forth herein is prohibited.I never agreed to this license agreement and was only able to see it after i purchased said pattern. So because i never agreed to it does this mean i have to follow it, and if i don't will the seller be able to take an legal recourse? Any help on this issue would be great since most of the information i have found on this subject is all hearsay and nothing concrete.Commercial Use: Other than as specifically permitted in this agreement, you may not use the Pattern for any commercial purposes, including but not limited to the sale, bulk reproduction, or distribution of the pattern itself or any goods or materials created using the Pattern.
