Bedrock Builders Inc. v. Town Square Homes, LLC et al
Another case involving misappropriated architectural drawings. Home builders, you should know by now that architectural drawings are protected by copyright law. If there’s a floor plan you really like, just pay for it! The price is beans (approx. $700-1500) against the cost of building a home. The Defendants in this case allegedly took multiple tours of Plaintiff’s model homes and then proceeded to build a home strikingly similar to Plaintiff’s architectural drawings. The Complaint has a fairly detailed fact pattern to show wilful infringement.
