IKEA is forcing one of its biggest and best-known fans to shut down her website unless she stops making money from it.

Seems to me that IKEA should rethink this......

IKEA Walks Back Threat Against Its Biggest Fan Site


IKEA issued a statement on Yahoo!Homes:

We want to clarify that we deeply regret the situation at hand with IKEAhackers. It has of course never been our ambition to stop their webpage. On the contrary, we very much appreciate the interest in our products and the fact that there are people around the world that love our products as much as we do. We are now evaluating the situation, with the intention to try to find a solution that is good for all involved.

Let's hope this new gesture leads to the continuation of IKEA Hackers.


Read article above to learn more about IKEA's possible change of heart. It looks like the the original cease and desist might actually have no basis in fact. It is certain the bad press did them no good.
