.Michelle McCrone For example, if I were to sell a shirt that had an applique on it that was cut using the Cricut, it's now ok, as long as I don't make more then 10,000 a year?

Julie Delaurier Bunning It's as long as you don't make more than 10,000 completed projects so if you made 10,000 cards and sold them at 5.00 each you could make 50,000 dollars. It's the number of projects not the $'s you charge!!!

    bless some of those poor people's hearts despite how many times we TOLD them they weren't limited to an angel policy apparently they didn't believe us. I can't believe that many people were actually obeying that old policy without even asking their attorney. Seriously, that was the first thing I did when I heard about their angel policy (which wasn't until AFTER they sued MTC).

    KayMc -> RE: Did you see the news?! (4/26/2010 12:40:38 PM)

    It seems they did this in response to the numerous postings stating that the angel policy was totally null and void and carried no legal weight. Rather than lose face and admit to that, this was possibly the result? I agree they couldn't come out and admit that it was always un-enforceable (is that a word?), so this was a smart response.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Kut-n-Print -> RE: Did you see the news?! (4/26/2010 12:42:48 PM)

    4/24/2010 - New Update about Provo Craft's Angel Policy

    New Update about Provo Craft’s Angel Policy
    April 23rd, 2010
    We've gotten some great feedback on the Angel Policy revision we made last week as it pertains to Cake. It's such great feedback, in fact, that we’d like to do something similar for paper crafters and mixed media artists. Moving forward, we're going to combine cake and other mediums so there's just one Angel Policy for everyone. And at the same time, we’d like to provide a bit more clarity to that policy. This will be the official policy going forward, and while there could be additional adjustments or clarifications from time to time, we don’t anticipate any significant changes in the near future.

    This new Angel Policy still does not authorize you to produce and sell individual, unassembled cuts using Cricut products (i.e., mass producing individually-cut letters or shapes to re-sell). It does, however, authorize you to sell up to 10,000 completed projects annually (i.e., cards, scrapbook pages, finished cakes), using cuts made with Cricut products. This revision offers the most flexibility possible to those who wish to create and sell projects made using any of the Provo Craft products, while also protecting the creative ideas and images of the independent artists with whom we work to produce art for our cartridges.

    We’ve tried to make this new policy as simple and clear as possible. We hope you’ll be really happy with what it allows you to do. But if there’s any part of this policy that you’re still unclear or unhappy about, please call our customer service department at 1-800-937-7686 and we’ll answer your questions. We also recognize that limiting the sale of completed projects to 10,000 differs from what we shared last week specifically with respect to the use of Cricut Cake. So if you bought Cricut Cake this week and find this revision no longer meets your needs, you can contact Customer Service by April 30, 2010 for a refund.

    Stirring the pot - sorry... to be fair thought I should include new updated responses to her question about selling carts:
    Hello,
    My wonderful dad bought me my Cricut machine for Christmas last year and I love it!! I have since bought myself a Gypsy and I have loaded all of my cartridges onto it. I use my Gypsy all of the time and I am now wondering if I should sell my cartridges to fund buying more? I am tempted to keep them just in case. What has everyone else done? Should I keep or should I sell?
    This I my first post, sorry if I have rambled on a bit!

    Welcome to the board! I am not an owner of the G, BUT others will correct me if I am wrong I dont think you can sell your cartridges now that they are linked. I have seen some on ebay very clearly posted they are linked but others have said what happens if something happens to your G?(it breaks) You no longer have your carts..Just something to think about. You will get other responses I'm sure and ultimatley it is your choice. Good Luck and will find the board very informative..

    You should all go back to the thread - there are two more pages of comments and one made by MArajade was just perfect... With all due respect. I can't believe you all are impressed with this.
    Provo craft has NO LEGAL RIGHT to impose any restrictions on how much you can cut or sell with YOUR machine. Unless you signed something when you purchased the machine and EACH cartridge, there is nothing binding you to this "policy." Please research this. NO ONE HAS BEEN SUED over this!!! NO ONE.
    If you never went to this site as a Cricut owner you would have no idea because it is not on ANY packaging that came with your machine or your cartridges.
    Ok I'm off my soap box now.

    Response from Cupcake Maggie: Marajade, I agree with what you're saying. The only reason I am posting a comment about this is that I am happy to see PC has rethought it's original posting of an "Angel Policy". I can't see the "average" user selling more than 10000 cuts per year. And if they do, I don't see PC having the time or resources to track this. I see it as peace offering from PC to satisfy their many unhappy customers.

    You know what - IMHO they answered the need for a new Angel Policy for those that were concerned about it, did it in a way that gives 10k projects for a year, and for them did it in a timely manner. They saved face. You have to pick your battles, to me there are much more important things, like MTC lawsuit. Let's dwell on a new battle or continue on the one this site already has. Please no flameing, but seems to me this is now taken care of for those that wanted an answer and for those who didn't feel it was legal, it is also done with. Carry on, be happy.

    we don't yell and flame here we simply state our opinion. As you have stated yours I will state mine.

    Yes they did what they needed to in order to save face, however they still didn't admit they were wrong. To you that may not matter however to me I prefer honesty in a company and trying to trick people into believing that their policy was legit to begin with is NOT honesty in my book.

    What is it that you would like for us to dwell on regarding the MTC lawsuit? The fact that Andy did NOTHING wrong? The fact that it is happening BECAUSE OF PC and their inability to accept the fact that someone did something they obviously weren't interested in or capable of doing? The fact that once again PC is trying to CONTROL what we bought with OUR money? They are ticked and trying to get revenge by suing the little man? This country was BUILT by the little guy and NO it is NOT okay with me when some big shot corporation comes in and tries to put them down because they are jealous or tries to TRICK people into thinking they can tell you what you can and can't do with something we paid for? NO, It just doesn't fly with me!!!!! Like I said if that's okay with you then fine, but it's not okay with me. When I owe someone an apology I will give it to them and I expect the same out of PC.

    Please do not take my post as being rude I am just SICK of PC trying to make themselves come out looking like roses and then people just sit back and "well it's okay" Yay look what they did for us. Well I may be blonde but I"m not stupid. They didn't do anything for me that I didn't already have the right to do. The only thing they accomplished by doing this is showing me once again they are not willing to be honest and upfront with their customers. Call it saving face, call it business, call it whatever you may but honesty is honesty and at this point I don't believe PC has a drop of honesty in them.

    Again, you stated your opinion and I stated mine!!!!! Hope you have a great day!!!!!

    I think it's stupid. Personally it's really stupid. An angel policy has no legal standing. I'm a member at the Cricut board but never post there because I can no longer support PC and the way it has handled itself. Matter of fact, I have been musing over selling my Cricut Original just because I don't use it enough and it's just not worth to me anymore. I've looked at the Gazelle but it's too expensive for me right now. I hate not to have anything to use MTC with, but sometimes I just wonder if I wouldn't be happier going back to no die cutting machine except my Cuttlebug and leaving well enough alone. I never really got caught up in the Cricut craze. Just purchased it on Thanksgiving Day in 2009 so it really took me a long time. Still trying to convince myself to keep it.
    But PC makes me laugh with the fact that they deign to give people the right to do 10000 projects in one year. I have one answer for them and it ain't nice!
    I always feel like somebody's watching me. Is it YOU?

    that is my point exactly. WHAT is so HARD for them that they can't answer people, and do so honestly? Instead it's just hit the delete key. Can you imagine what kind of world we would live in if everytime we didn't want to deal with our problems we just hit the delete key?

    I am not always happy with the decisions of PC and how they have not taken care of many of the
    Gypsy and DS problems, etc. But for myself I love my E and cartridges, I bought that system after much comparison shopping and realized that I am not a computer person, so my best way were the carts. I bought in 2006 and have worked myself into DS and do ok, than along came SCAL which tempted me, but still I wondered if I could handle that, and just as I finally said yes, I'm going to do, along came MTC which I bought after the first of the year. I haven't learned it yet, but I putz around with it, check into the message board here, and I'm doing okay.

    There are so many things to upset us, and roadblocks put in our way, like for me, it is losing my oldest son to Sudden Cardiac Arrest. But we go on somehow, maybe become better people, at least stronger. I didn't ask anyone to dwell on what we can do for MTC. I myself am trying to keep positive thoughts and if or when it has to go to trial ( which I pray it doesn't) I will have to trust in our jury system, for that is all I can do.

    The wonderful part about not liking a product or company is that we have so many choices and can buy what we want and deal with who we want. So I will continue to use my E and carts, and keep working on learning MTC and others can choose to use whatever they want and works for them. I love America and all the choices it has given me all these years - by the way I am not always happy with the running of this great nation either. LOL

    So happy crafting to everyone which ever machine you use - even if it's just sissors.

  • GaTechGalGaTechGal Member Posts: 898
    goCricutgo, I appreciate your stance, and sometimes I just want to ignore the drama. But when you say, "The wonderful part about not liking a product or company is that we have so many choices and can buy what we want and deal with who we want. " there in lies the problem. If PC had their way we WOULDN'T have a choice. They are trying to stop Andy with this lawsuit. He has not been able to release any upgrades since this mess started. So they are limiting my choices.

    Now if his software only worked with the Cricut, then we would have to stick it out. Maybe we would buy a new cutter, but then we might be stuck with other crappy or difficult software. But if you LIKE MTC and decide to get a new cutter, then you can still work with software you know because MTC works with other cutters BESIDES Cricut. And perhaps there in lies the fear from PC. If SCAL works only with Cricut, then folks can use it, but they still have to pay PC for the machine. But since MTC works with others, then people have a choice. But if PC is standing in the way of our being able to get the software, then they are limiting our choice. Does this rambling make sense?

    Now the whole thing with the Angel Policy is sort of a side issue, but it really demonstrates that you can effect change if you inform people. They still HAVE an Angel Policy, but they had to loosen up a bit. And maybe some eyes were opened in the process.

    Glad you're here. We want to help get you over that hump using the software, so don't HESITATE to ask any questions.
  • grandmamichelfgrandmamichelf Member Posts: 372
    I don't pay attention to Angel Policies. Never have. I pay attention to the "FBI will arrest you" stuff on CDs and DVDs and I don't have anyone to share carts with, so mehhhh...what is PC doing for me? Nadda. Zippo. Nilch. Nothing.

    And frankly I was getting ready to hurl reading how wonderful those people think PC is for this new Angel Policy. Puh-lease. My advice to PC: Build a bridge and get over yourselves.

    I don't understand. If this is "supposed" to be a respectful and great site...why all the PC slamming? Instead of cutting down what you don't like,w hy don't you just support what you have? I have come her often to learn more about MTC and what it can do, but all I read are the comments criticizing the folks that do like PC and their products. Some of us aren't as computer savvy to run MTC or Funtime and prefer the predesigned carts out there. Are we less intelligent? Are we less creative? Are we just downright stupid? No. Everyone is entitled to their own personal preference... But that's the feeling I get from all those comments when I read all the "did you see what was posted at the Cricut MB" and links are posted here. Calling Cricut users sheep (or lemmings.. can't find the exact quite) or all the comments made. It all reminds me of junior high. I didn't do well with it then, and don't have to put up with it now. If this is what you call respectful, I don't want any part of it. MTC looks like a great program. I'm not sure how I feel about the whole situation. I haven't had the $$ for MTC right now....but with all the snide remarks about PC and their loyal customers (basically insulting others for their choice/opinion which I don't consider respectfu), I don't know if I want to buy it now.

    I'm not a spy for PC.....just a regular Jo(sephine) that hates snarkiness

    Nonnie2four, Sweetie,

    I don't know what all you've read, but I think the "sheep" and "lemmings" being referred to are the ones jumping all over themselves to agree that the company is just so wonderful to open up the "Angel Policy" to include the paper crafters too. Like, duh!!!!

    I use my PC products. They are good for an entry point. They are good for what they do. I never said they weren't or that people who prefer to use carts were stupid in any way. I like to go farther than the carts and DS alone will allow. That's my choice. I don't knock others for deciding differently. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

    I will tell you, I paid $68 for my MTC and consider it money well spent. If it weren't for this stupid lawsuit, I would have been enabled by someone from this forum into buying two more carts tonight to use along with MTC. As it is, I'm pursuing an embargo on PC products. My personal choice and I don't look down on those who choose differently.

    I hope you can see that what you took to be disrespectful is just us expressing our opinions of that company's policies and the uninformed who think the company has the right to dictate to them/us, not the people that use the products.

    Lisa

    ps I hope you got the joke about the sheep baa baa the poster is named Lamb LOL
