My office just received a tip from several sources (governmental and industry) that my office's standard details and notes are all being used by another Structural Engineer and contractor in almost exact duplicate form. When I spend countless hours fine tuning my unique presentation, details and notes to make construction go smoothly, it irks me to see others take advantage of my work using a simple Xerox machine. I know "imitation is the best form of flattery" but I'm not flattered. Has anyone else run into such a problem? This is similar to the "tract housing" thread earlier this year on this list server. What suggestions does anyone have? The plans were not copyrighted with a direct statement. Is there a commonlaw copyright implied? BTW: An explicit copyright is now going to be on the plans, etc. Thanks John Lawson SE Kramer & Associates Structural Engineers, Inc. jlawson(--nospam--at)kramerinc.com
