All Sater Design Collection, Inc. plans are protected under all U.S. and International copyright laws. Reproduction of the plans, either in whole or part, including any for of copying and/or preparation of derivative works thereof, for any reason without prior written permission, is strictly prohibited.
The purchase of a license in no way transfers any copyright or other ownership interest in it to the buyer except as limited use of 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 (sepia, mylar's) carries the same copyright as mentioned above. It is generally allowed to make up to a maximum of 20 copies for the construction of a single dwelling only. To use any plans more than once and to avoid any copyright or 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 or the original designer.
Copyright law has been reinforced over the past few years. Willful infringement could cause settlements for statutory damages up to and not limited to $150,000.00 plus attorney's fees, damages and loss of profits. Illustration or working drawings by any means is strictly prohibited. Although we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of our plan information, we reserve the right to make corrections on our floor plans or elevations if changes occur.
