I'm assuming the rants came from them/others hearing a certain podcast recently. Good for the designers, speaking up.

Through my crafting life, I've had very nice people hook me up with photocopies of patterns. I appreciated the kindness towards me it showed, but usually pretended that I didn't have the pattern, and then when I was ready to use it, I looked up the publication it was in and purchased the publication. Unless it's something obscure, it's not hard to find the pattern and make compensation if it was a pay pattern or had certain requirements attached to it.

I'd be pissed if I came into my office and someone had stole some merch, even if they left a note saying how much they really loved it and thanked me for it, and promised to buy from me in the future. I try real hard never to be that asshole. I wish others would too.

(*Jeez I'm ranting. I'll go rant on my blog later today/tomorrow about this.*)
