This is just the tip of the iceberg w/ me and MissIndie.etsy.com
She bought my pattern for a trellis headband about 7 mos. ago. She then gave me horrible feedback, dissing the pattern and everything in my shop. I had to contact etsy admin for them to remove her lunatic’s ranting. They did, thankfully.
Now she lists these headbands in her shop as her own. Beyond that, she is even selling MY pattern for said headband. She is even using MY OWN DIRECTIONS word for word (I know this via 3 friends who bought “her” pattern for the headband) My very words. So take a look here, at my listing.
The douchebag even copied my own graphics, and is using them as her own!
here is missindie’s blatant copy of my own:
Etsy will boot your ass if you “call out” on the forums, but you can be an outright plagarist, and still be allowed to exist in Etsyland.
Here is a shop that needs a swift kick to the ASS.
