This specific issue is addressed in the 2000 AISC Code of Standard Practice. That document may not apply to your project, but it gives some treatment to the issue, which was previously untreated (to my knowledge).
Take a look at Section 4.3 in the new Code here:
Hope this helps.

Today I became aware of a disturbing situation. It seems a contractor (whom I do not know personally) copied a portion of a drawing produced by our office, reassembled it into a drawing of his own and tried to pull permit.
Tomorrow I meet with the individual who alerted me to this situation and will have the opportunity to see the drawing in question.
Anyone ever have a similar experience? Anyone know of the legal recourses available for something like this?
