It's a messy time for Intellectual property, but Tesco should know where it stands.

A mum who runs her own knitting business is claiming that Tesco has started to sell one of her designs without acknowledging her intellectual property rights:

“I have not supplied the design or pattern to them and I did not give my consent for my design to be used but it seems that doesn’t count when it comes to big business, they just take what they want regardless of the intellectual property rights of individuals.”

I reckon we are all confused about IP at the moment but any business which fights to protect it’s own IP has no place abusing others’.

Perhaps it’s time for Julie Williams to start a legal fundraiser using a tip jar under the title “Every Little Helps” ?
