What about blueprints, designs, and drawings for construction purposes? How different does a design or blueprint have to be before it becomes an original work? After all, I see many, many home designs by different companies that are all very similar. Thousands of ranches, cape cods, and bungalows share the same basic floor plan, though supposedly being "copyrighted" by the architects. If I buy blueprints -- either one set or several from different companies -- and using them as "inspiration" and "ideas" to create my own design, how different does that design have to be from any other set of blueprints to constitute an original work and absolve me from any liability for copyright infringement?
