The plans are not "owned" by the jurisdiction, but merely *loaned* to the 
jurisdiction to determine if they are in conformance with the building code.

the registrant, for whatever reason whatsoever, notifies the building 
official that he/she is removing his/her seal, then the work is unsealed.

unauthorized re-use of plans and specifications, or not having been paid.
