Home Plan Copyright Protections


These days it seems almost everybody has a question about what can or cannot be done with copyrighted home plans. At Design Basics, we know U.S. copyright law can sometimes get complex and confusing, but here are a few of the basic points of the law you'll want to remember.


Each plan offered for sale by Design Basics, Inc. is copyrighted with the U.S. Federal Copyright Office. This means the images and construction prints of our home plans are legally protected from unlawful use.


Keep it legal with our Plan Promotional Licenses or our "Single-Build Construction License!
