When you buy professional plans you receive a license. A license lets you legally build or modify a plan, but unfortunately some people don’t realize this. When a person builds or modifies a plan without buying the blueprints, they miss out on the benefits the blueprints would provide. They also violate copyright laws. Most importantly, they hurt the designers and their families. Violating copyright laws is a serious offense and can result in penalties of up to $100,000 per violation.
