Every house plan sold through TheHouseDesigners.com is protected by copyright.
Here are the basics that you should know about copyright laws as they pertain to the residential home design and building industry:
Purchasing a set of blueprints transfers no right or ownership of the plan to the purchaser. The purchaser has merely purchased a limited license to build that structure one time.
Blueprints may not be lent, given away, or sold by the purchaser.
Making photocopies of, or reproducing in any form, the blueprints, plans, drawings, or any other related artwork without the written consent of the creator is illegal, just as it is in other creative industries.
We want you to be aware of the general copyright policies presented to you by our architects and designers. This information is for your benefit and can help you decide which plan package is right for you. You should purchase enough plans to complete your home building project, or one of the packages that grants you a license to make your own copies.
