Ummmm I don't know if I would say that... I don't really know of a diaper that Alva ripped an exact design off of.... other than being a pocket? If u consider that ripping off?

Whoa. I wasn't trying to start drama at all. I am relatively new to the CD scene and was honestly curious. Sorry.

Re: Alva stealing prints?

Can you post a link? I can't seem to find anywhere with images of a lovelace print.

Re: Alva stealing prints?

Technically, they can make them, but reselling them in the US when they are designed and copyrighted here can be problematic for the re-seller. I don't agree with this practice, and this is why I cannot support this company. Other brands have also had their prints copied.

Re: Alva stealing prints?

I know a lot of the companies getting their prints stolen (that were licensed and designed specifically for them) are pursuing legal action with china cheapies that stole them, so they're not completely getting away with it.

China steals things all the time. The only thing that may help would be an international patent. That only helps a bit, it still happens.

I do have Alva diapers but there is no way I would feel right about buying a blatantly copied pattern from them.
