The law disagrees with you.Again, the law that applies here is designs and patents, not copyright. Copyright holds for literary and artistic works. The lady should probably have registered a design for the unique features of her carrier.
You are wrong. They copied a design either in part or in full. It is very much a legal issue. Under law you are also responsible for what your employees do so she could very well have sued if she wanted to. As has also been said hers is not a copy and has unique features. Stop trying to divert the issue here.Stop trying to argue the law when you’re just woke
But seriously, this stuff is the domain of SJWs frothing at the mouth who think the law should work the way they think. There is absolutely no case in court IMO. This is not a legal issue. It’s a social justice issue.
Do I disagree with Woolies copying her product (even if not identical)... yes, and I’d be annoyed if they did that to my product too but do I think she should blame them of anything more than possibly an ethics breach? No.
Besides, woolies is a big firm, it’s not always possible to know when employees have stepped outside the lines. When it was pointed out to them, they made amends. Internally they have some training to do with their staff, that’s all. And those lines are NOT LEGAL. It was totally legal for Woolies to copy any design in the public domain.
I very much doubt she’d even have got a patent for her carrier given its a copy of other designs out there.
No you can perform your own rendition of it as that constitutes own work/talent. Has nothing to do with public domain as music isn't copyrighted in the same way. You're welcome to look this up if you want and there's even a different symbol for it but you can pretty much preform someone else's song and the only thing they can claim is attribution.Wat? If I write music and lyrics, both can absolutely be copyrighted. What made you think I was even referring to using your rendition of anything? Recording, distributing or performing a copyrighted work without license is illegal unless you own that work. I was talking about performing your own rendition of something in the public domain. That’s what happened here. Her baby carrier is as much a copy of someone else’s idea. And it’s not illegal.
No you're just being stubborn.Everyone is just being woke and hearing what they want to hear as usual.
