Selling plans

Post by domll » Mon Jun 11, 2012 5:45 pm

hi, wondering if anyone can help me? I build and fly radio controlled aircraft as a hobby:
Question -After i have finished with the plans can i sell them on? They are copyright and I have check on the UK@CS site and although i cannot 'Copy the work,Rent, lend or issue copies of the work to the public or Adapt the work', there is no mention of selling them on.

I already know of a few people who do this but wanted to check first.

Thanks in advance :D

Hi domil,
Yes there is no problem with you selling the original plans which you purchased, as you have not copied them. This is because you have a normal owner's right to dispose of your physical property as you wish. So this is no different to buying a painting then selling it at a later stage.

What a great reply, and pretty much what I wanted to hear.

Thanks so much for your help. All of the items I wish to reprint are indeed from the early 1940s.
