  • Copyright on designs, what it is and how it works

    There is a great post about copyright on Poeacock & Fig. Anyway I felt that some people miss the bases of the entire issue.
    When designers complain about people sharing their designs, the most common response is "I bought it, I can do whatever I want with it". False.
    CBSE-schools-to-run-tuck-shopsLet's say a morning you wake up with a big urge to read, go to the library shop, and buy a book. Did you bought the book? Yes. Is the book your? Yes. But, since you bought the book, is the story yours too? No. Neither story, nor the idea, nor the phrases that are written inside the book, that are copyright, and therefore owned, by the author.
    What you can do with your book? You can read it one or multiple times, highlight it (please don't do that with library books!), use it as a wedge for a wobbly table, make a personal copy of it if you don't want to highlight the original one, gift it to a friend.
    What you can't do with your book? Use the idea or parts of the text to write your own book to sell it, sell photocopies or digital copies of it, scan it and share it with your facebook reading group.

  • Lost - Epic Version

    Were you a lost fan? Did you spent hours and hours looking for clues and symbols? If so, you can't miss this cross stitch pattern! It is an absolutely epic version that features all the main characters, some side characters and a lot of symbols, including all the Dharma logos, key objects, and a lot of Faraday's calculation. The main idea of this backstitched part, is to give the idea of all the guesswork, hint research and connection that Lost fans did during the show.

    Let's see it in the detail!
    On top: the Lost logo together with the falling airplane and the black smoke. On the backstitched details "#1 - The night I met you" from Charlie's list, Sawyer's assembled glasses and the Egyptian symbols of the countdown clock, on the other side "The numbers are bad" quote by Hurley and some notes from the Faraday's blackboard.

    On the left border: "The Swan" Dharma vault , the compass that doesn't point to the north, "The Hidra"Dharma vault, the submarine, "The Arrow" Dharma vault, Locke's wheelchair, "The Lighthouse"Dharma vault, the good and bad balance from Jacob's cave, "The Orchid" Dharma vault and the bottle of wine straight and upside-down to represent good and evil.
    Backstitched: 15, 42, 23 and 4 from the numbers series, "Flight 815", Locke's knife, some notes from the Faraday's blackboard, "Out of the book club" Ben's quote.
