BH&G plans from the 60's ~ copyright laws, procedure for

Postby mid20thcentury » Wed Jul 21, 2010 3:17 pm

I have a set of blueprints from the 60's which are protected by copyright from Meredith Publishing. Has anyone sought to buy a license to use old plans or know the procedure to see if they can be used? Thanks.

just change the design 10% or so and you should be good

you'll probably be adjusting/redesigning the kitchen, bathrooms, closets, laundry plus structural changes to bring things up to code anyway which would change it enough to not violate the copywrite.

just got the latest issue of CA Modern yesterday and read Joe's article (link below) on Robert Rummer - just follow his lead!

We too would love to hear what you do!


Several visitors have said they've been in homes exactly like ours in their youth, and ours was not part of a development when it was built in 1960; the neighborhood didn't fill in until the 1980's.
We know that our house was built from some kind of widely publicized plans, and BG & H is the most likely suspect.

We've seen few plans here and there. Anybody know where there is a big grouping (preferably online) of BG&H plans to look at?
