BASTIAN HOMES, NEW HOMEPLANS & DESIGNS, ARE COPYRIGHTED #1 Just like movies, songs and books, the federal copyright law protects the intellectual property of architects and home designers by giving copyright protection to home plans and designs. These legal protections exist to protect all parties. The copyright law prevents anyone from reproducing, modifying or reusing the plans or design without written permission from the copyright owner. #2 It is further illegal to create construction drawings from home designs found in any plan book portfolio or on the Internet. It is also illegal to copy a constructed home that is protected by copyright, even if you have never seen the plan for the home. #3 Any party who participates in copyright violation may be responsible, including the purchaser, designers, architects, engineers, drafters, homeowners, builders, contractors, subcontractors, printers, developers and real estate agencies. It does not matter whether the individual knows that a violation is being committed, as ignorance of the law is not a valid defense.
