IMPORTANT COPYRIGHT NOTICE
All plans sold by Jim Cox Designs are protected by The United States Copyright Act. Reproduction of these plans, either in whole or in part, including any form of copying, distribution, dissemination, preparation, of derivative works there from, 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 a dwelling unit.
HOME PLANS ARE COPYRIGHTED
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.
DON’T COPY DESIGNS OR FLOOR PLANS FROM ANY PUBLICATION, ELECTRONIC MEDIA OR EXISTING HOME
It is illegal to create construction drawings from home designs found in any plan book, CD_ROM or on the internet. It is a common misunderstanding that it is permissible to copy, adapt or change a floor plan or design found in any media. It is not. 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. If a particular home plan or existing home is desired, a set of plans must be purchased from an authorized source.
PLANS AND BLUEPRINTS CANNOT BE COPIED OR REPRODUCED
Plans and blueprints cannot be copied. If additional sets are required, please contact Jim Cox Designs to purchase additional sets (within 30 days of original purchase) at a nominal cost. Printers are prohibited from making copies of these plans.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT?
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. Remember: ignorance of the law is not a valid defense. Refuse to be a party to any illegal copying or use of designs, derivative works, prints or design features by being certain of the original plan source.
