Atually you can copyright designs, but it is expensive, takes time, and the amount you can recover if you "prosecute" is not enough to make it worth it for one dress design. The only thing stopping everyone from making copies is their integrity and the fear of losing their good name. Your best form of restitution is name and shame in hopes they won't do it again, but I wouldn't do that before contacting the dm first to allow for an explanation.

    So, this means I can name and shame the guilty party, in this case the TC aka client? She might think she can get awaay with this, because she is a TC. (NT)sndmTuesday, March 15, 06:04:56pm
