But some engineers have been putting the UBC nailing requirements on their drawings for over 40 years and probably longer.

I taught a seminar a few years ago and wanted to use excerpts out of the IBC/IRC.  The conference organizer requested permission, and was granted fairly limited permission to copy/distribute pertinent sections.

I've seen this done and always wondered about the copyright issues involved.  Does anyone have a handle on them?

There is no guarantee that a contractor will read the gen'l notes.  We had notes to refer the GC to the Nailing Schedule in the UBC.  After a few site visits to different jobs, no contractor had a copy of the UBC, let alone where to look for such a nailing schedule.  We basically reprinted the table onto our drawings after that.
