There was a very interesting and extremely informative thread on the Etsy forums in regards to copyright infringement by using trademarked materials such as Disney fabric.
Etsy admin has closed that thread under the guise of "calling out".
I'm sorry, but what?
Where else are we supposed to discuss this sort of thing? Isn't that what the Business section of the Etsy forums is supposed to be about?
If we, as sellers, are not allowed to discuss incredibly important issues such as copyright infringement there in case we offend those who are breaking the law, then what's the point? Why should be bother even being interested in what is best for the Etsy community as a whole?
Honestly, I'm very, very disappointed with Etsy right now. Closing that thread was wrong. Just plain wrong.
