Rip-off of Luna Wolf pad patterns and tutorial set

Hi everyone,

It has been brought to my attention that the pattern and tutorial set I created in 2008/9, and still sell through my website today, has been ripped off by an Etsy seller called "Happy Moon Pads".

This is my original pattern and tutorial set:

You can see from the picture that the text on the pattern reads "Copyright Luna Wolf 2008. For personal or non profit use only."

This is the ripped off pattern: [EDIT: this has now been removed and replaced with a different listing - see following update post.]

Screenshots (click to enlarge):

As you can see, it is identical, but the text pertaining to Luna Wolf has been removed. Her price also undercuts mine.  Unbelievably, she is also selling a licence which enables the buyer to sell pads made FROM MY PATTERNS - as long as they give credit to HER SHOP!

PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PATTERN/TUTORIAL SET FROM HAPPY MOON PADS! This is MY work, for which I can provide the original hand-drafted patterns if anybody would like to see them.  Please do not give your money to somebody who is making money dishonestly off of somebody else's hard work and creativity.

Etsy has been notified.

Thanks for reading.
