Oh, hi there.  I haven’t posted in a million years.  Sorry ’bout that, I’ve been … well, not busy.  Distracted.  And I’ve actually got FOs!  But we’ll get to those in a few days, mkay?  In the meantime, drop what you’re doing and go read this.  Intellectual property rights are under attack all over the Internet and almost no one is paying attention.  Well, as knitters and designers and bloggers and consumers, we should be paying attention.  We should care about this – because no one will design awesome free patterns if they’re treated as if their work has no value.  So go, read, spread the word, and let’s start a ruckus.  Let’s make people pay attention, and let’s show that theft of intellectual property is just as bad as stealing my iPod or your car.
