an Ethical question concerning diapers

post #1 of 69
Thread Starter 
Let's say, you are in with a particular diaper. But, they're really hard to get your grubby paws on one. You'd buy a whole lot of them, if they were available though. Would it be unethical to copy the diaper and make more of your own?? I'm not talking about to sell or anything, but just for yourself. I'm just curious as to what everyone's thoughts are on this topic.

I don't think so, if they're for your own use. Now if you were to go into business selling knockoff hyena dipes, to me that's a big no-no. But just for you, go for it! I wish I could copy some of the dipes I have by WAHMs that are no longer around but I can't sew that well.

I think if you are making it just for you then its cool.

I agree totaly. You will save money and get what you want. That is not an ethical thing!

I would think it is fine. When you are done with them you can fairy them.

yeah I think its fine... just like its ok to copy a CD to tape or another CD for personal use... there's nothing wrong with that

plus you could alter it a little to fit even better if you like

I agree with all the other posters. As long as they are for your own use, it's all good

I am envisioning a seedy little online store with knock-off hyena dipes -- Albee and Peewee Pie... :

If they are just for your own use, go for it, mama! I think that's awesome!

My opinion is

if you copy it those could be just famous last words that they would only be for you. I dunno, I just think if you are copying something you should get the persmission of the diaper owner of that design first. I really do not feel it is ethical otherwise.

I really don't see how it could be a loss for the WAHM if you copied diapers and used them for only yourself. Or even if you GAVE a couple to friends, not telling them whose design it was. i suppose you could ask the WAHM if it was ok, but i can't think why it would really be necessary, particualry if you weren't going around bragging about it and telling everybody surreptitiously.
