"At this year's DragonCon, props builder (and cosplayer) Harrison Krix made one of the standout outfits, designing a camouflage pattern that matched the carpet of the Marriott Marquis Atlanta, the hotel the convention was being held at. It was amazing, but carpet designers Couristan Inc. aren't happy.
Seems Krix was selling some of the fabric he made for the costumes on textile site Spoonflower, so that others could make their own for next year's show. He's since had to pull the design, having received a Cease and Desist from Couristan.
Someone really needs to start running law classes on "perspective". Or, at the very least, remind people of the difference between the spirit of the law and the letter."
I'm mostly surprised the author of the article and the people in the comments section cannot seem to grasp how legally incorrect this action was. What do you think? Power of law gone too far, or was the concept of intellectual property upheld correctly?
