So, I know that everyone draws the line in different places when it comes to determining the difference between 'crafty tribute' and 'copyright violation'. I was just at my local service station (gas station/tank station/whatever you call it in your neck of the woods) where beanies resembling Muppet characters were being sold. There were brand tags on them, but nowhere did they acknowledge the copyright for said characters. If you liked the way that these products looked, would you still be inclined to purchase them? Additionally, what are your thoughts on hand-crafted items being sold at craft markets and such places? Does the fact that it's being made and sold by an independent artisan rather than a company make you any more/less inclined to buy it?
