In a recent Canadian case, a decision has been rendered about copyright in an architect's drawings and designs. The court found that a contractor infringed an architect’s copyrights designs and drawings. The contractor used similar architectural plans it had lawfully acquired in connection with one project for another development without the architect’s permission. The court granted an injunction, declaratory relief and statutory damages. This decision serves as a helpful reminder to those in construction and related industries about the risks associated with using architectural designs and drawings without permission.
