Submission + - Fabric design included in book leads to lawsuit (carolinapatchworks.com)

innocent_white_lamb writes: Emily Cier writes books about making quilts. Manufacturers send her free samples of their fabrics in the hope that she will use their materials in her books. Now a fabric designer is threatening to sue her for "tens of thousands of dollars, plus lawyer fees, destroying all copies of the book, etc." for including a photo of a quilt made with their fabric design in one of her books. Amazing, considering that the fabric was provided to her by the manufacturer for, apparently, that exact purpose.
