crib bedding copyright??

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've read through several threads about patterns and copyright for clothes but does anyone know about crib bedding sets (bumper/skirt etc). We've had some requests from customers who really like our fabrics to start making crib sets. I assume they are all a standard size so that would be pretty much the same across the board. We were going to just look at a few different ones and then kind of make our own pattern based on that. Would we run into any problems with this? I've looked online at different companies and their bedding sets and they all seem pretty much the same so my guess is it should be fine. If anyone has any info, I'd appreciate it.

No links for you specifically on bedding/copyright but I would say that bedding as a useful object is not covered by copyright. If there is artwork, that is protected but just the bed shape itself is not.

Thanks, that is kind of what I was thinking as well. Seems like it'd be hard to own the pattern for something that is a standard pattern like bedding. I'll keep digging to see what I can find.

Well put, lilyka. I think I just needed that extra verification of what I was thinking! Now that I've moved on, I am really excited to get some sets put together for the holidays! Thanks.
