Copyright Notice

All home plans sold through this electronic publication are protected by copyright. Reproduction of these home plans, either in whole or in part, including any form of copying and/or preparation of derivative works thereof, for any reason without prior written permission, is strictly prohibited. The purchase of a set of home plans in no way transfers any copyright or other ownership interest in it to the buyer except for a limited license to use that set of home plans for the construction of one, and only one, dwelling unit. The purchase of additional sets of that home plan at a reduced price from the original set or as part of a multiple set package does not convey to the buyer a license to construct more than one dwelling.

Similarly, the purchase of reproducible home plans (sepias, mylars) carries the same copyright protection as mentioned above. It is generally allowed to make up to a maximum of 10 copies for the construction of a single dwelling only. To use any plans more than once, and to avoid any copyright/license infringement, it is necessary to contact the plans designer to receive a release and license for any extended usage. Whereas a purchaser of reproducibles is granted a license to make copies, it should be noted that as copyrighted material, making photocopies from blueprints is illegal.

Copyright and licensing of home plans for construction exists to protect all parties. It respects and supports the intellectual property of the original architect or designer.

Copyright law has been reinforced over the past few years. Willful infringement could cause settlements for statutory damages up to $100,000 plus attorney's fees, damages and loss of profits.

Additional sets of home plans are available within twelve months of the purchase date of the plan. After that date, a new license to construct must be purchased.
