Is it bad to print out colourlovers creations?

Showing 1 - 3 of 3 Comments
I like to use the patterns, palettes and colors on colourlovers. I have printed a few that I like to make cards. My question is: Is it illegal or considered rude to print out someone's patterns for personal use?
hmm...I think it would depend on what license they've set for the palette. :) If they've reserved all rights, printing them out goes against copyright. But I don't get the impression that many lovers would mind if you print out their work as long as you give them credit for it.
Ok thanks so much for the info. I'll make sure to give credit and check the license before printing. :)

I apologize if I am missing something but is it imperative that every error result in lost patternS?
If one steps out of procedure, an error comes up with a completely Uncolored pattern.
Is it really your intention to punish someone for not checking the recaptcha before naming a color or for taking too long to name a color? Sometimes I spend a lot of time choosing colors for a pattern only to have it completely lost because of some technicality. I sincerely doubt nefarious entities are trying to infiltrate the site with poor taste.
Is it not possible to return an error without completely erasing the work to that point ?
Respectfully
