i would like to use patterns from a crochet book i've purchased to make several items and then sell them to retail stores. i contacted the company and asked if i would be violating their copyright and they said yes, mass production using their patterns is not allowed. but i've been doing some research and now i'm not sure if i really would be in violation of their copyright. wouldn't the first sale doctrine apply here? if i purchase the book with the pattern arent' i allowed to use the pattern to make items for sale?
