Can I share my e-Patterns?
You can print two copies of your e-Patterns for personal use, but like any other copyrighted work, you cannot re-sell, or distribute electronically or otherwise any of our e-Patterns. Each e-Pattern contains copyright protection features that ensure only you can view and print your patterns, and only from your computer. With e-PatternsCentral.com you'll have no worries about risking piracy or other copyright violations.
