Copyright and Instruments of Service

It is important to remember the complexities and added legal requirements for architectural and engineering law. Some of these additional requirements are copyright and instruments of service.

  • Copyright protects original intellectual works.
  • Instruments of service are any original creative work, such as a drawing, created by a design professional for a project’s owner. The threshold for originality is not high.

Designers’ and owners’ interests during a project often conflict. The owner may want to re-use a drawing for later projects. Design professionals may want to utilize disclaimers for misappropriation and use of drawings. Our attorneys can use their knowledge of copyright law and instruments of service provisions to protect your interests during contract negotiation or litigation with the owner.
