As one of the leading beading kit manufacturers and retailers in the UK we are often asked about copyright and how it affects the consumer, It usually surprises them to learn how far-reaching and all-encompassing the rules are.
Whilst we add some information about the subject in our kits we were pleased to see that the Beadworkers Guild covered the subject in an issue of their journal. Whilst it dealt mainly with books and magazines, the information applies equally to kits and instructions.
They have very kindly granted us permission to reproduce the article for which we extend our thanks.
We hope that the information contained in the article has helped to clarify the situation. If you have any further questions then we would be only too pleased to assist wherever possible.
The Beadworkers Guild welcome beadworkers of all abilities, facilitates the exchange of ideas and knowledge and promotes beadwork to the public. Amongst the many benefits to membership are the quarterly high-quality journal and workshops which are run throughout the UK. We cannot recommend them enough.
