A majority of the Crochet and Knitting Pattern Designers who create patterns for others to work up are stay at home mom's who do this for extra money. Many of them do not have programming knowledge to protect their files from being shared on piracy websites. We all love using Ravelry and would like them to join us in this fight. We want Ravelry to provide the following:
1. a service to digitally stamp the pdf's with paypal user's private information when checking out.
2. set up a way to ban these users from purchasing in their stores again if caught.
3. set up a way to track the pdf's, so when a file is being reshared and a new ip address shows up, we can deactivate their use of the pattern and ban as well.
Protect Pattern Designer's pdf's to help prevent piracy
