What is a pattern pirate? A pattern pirate is someone who makes a digital copy of a designer's hard work without her permission and uploads it to the Internet where anyone can download it. It's not only illegal. It's taking away a designer's livelihood as well as income from distributors, brick and mortar stores, and Internet stores. We have to pay bills, mortgages, and college tuition for our kids too.

One designer shared with me that she lost tens of thousands of dollars in income last year. She was so upset about it that she almost QUIT designing! Several other designers told me they were discouraged too and thought about quitting. Others have already closed their doors! Where would we be if all designers quit designing?

You still think it's no big deal copying someone else's work and freely distributing it? That it's just a form of sharing? Just think about this. You get your paycheck only to find it is about 30% lower than it should be. You ask your boss about it, and he states he decided to "share" your hard earned money with others without your permission. How would you like that?
