Fabric design included in book leads to lawsuit

innocent_white_lamb (151825) writes "Emily Cier writes books about making quilts. Manufacturers send her free samples of their fabrics in the hope that she will use their materials in her books. Now a fabric designer is threatening to sue her for "tens of thousands of dollars, plus lawyer fees, destroying all copies of the book, etc." for including a photo of a quilt made with their fabric design in one of her books. Amazing, considering that the fabric was provided to her by the manufacturer for, apparently, that exact purpose."
