McCall's Patterns
and Its Copyrights

Perhaps the title should read "mcCall's patterns and Its CLAIMED Copyrights"?

On June 15, 2010, there were 108 entries for the search parameter "McCall's" on the US Copyright Office web site. Now remember, McCall's did, or still does, other things besides patterns. Under copyright law, in order for a copyright owner to enforce their rights in federal court, the work MUST be registered (or have been denied registration) before filing a court action. We interpret this requirement to mean that Congress intended that copyrights must meet that criteria before the copyright owner has any enforceable rights and that includes taking action against internet listings and use.

The 108 entries are shown below by date. There is not one pattern registered. Unlike Simplicity, McCall's never registered the pattern envelopes. That means that any pattern envelopes published by McCall's before March 1989 are most likely in public domain.

So when McCall's tells you that their patterns are copyrighted, McCall's is lying to you. When McCall's says you cannot use the pictures of the finished product from the pattern envelopes before 1989, McCall's is lying to you. Why is McCall's wasting its time and resources on such silliness? We think it is the "Playground Bully Syndrome" at work.
