    I was going to ask the same thing Garricks - maybe they don't realize the repercussions. It's NOT the artist's problem - it's there's. I'd be tempted to make sure this isn't an education problem - as in maybe they need to be fully educated on the seriousness of the issue.

      I think you're right. However, some people never learn, or don't care, until they get slammed with a C&D letter.
      This post is brought to you by the letter E and the number 9. Those are the buttons I push to get a Twix out of the candy machine.

        No. They know what can happen. I've told them. They are under the impression that if it's "changed a little" nothing can come back on them. Apparently they hired me because I DON'T know what I'm talking about.

        They are stupid, stupid people who think they know all. And in this case, the actual pattern wasn't changed, just the colors in it. And not even all of those. This is most definately blatant infringement.

        I may quit and tell them that if they contest my unemployment I will call Adobe personally. And then do it anway just because that "artist" should be stopped.

        I AM going to consult with an attourney to make sure none of this can legally come back on me. If it can, then I legally can leave without losing my benefits in order to protect myself and my career. Then I will turn them in. Bastards.

          I'm sure you know that changing it won't make it okay, and it sounds like telling them that won't do any good. I'd get something in writing, that's dated, to show you've informed them that they are illegally using Adobe patterns that are protected. What they do with that information is up to them, but it should help prove you tried to stop it.

          And I'd quit that job. Get a job at McWhatever if I had to, just get out. They obviously don't care what laws they break or who they step on to get what they want - or who they throw under the bus.

          I would also wonder about their relationship or connection to the person they paid oodles to 'create' those patterns and not care that they got conned. The sneaky part of me thinks it was a friend or relative that they won't turn in, or even a way to funnel money out of the company.
