In summary, both the copyright laws and the AIA Owner-Architect Agreement, B141-1997, provide significant protections to the author of an architectural work Â– usually the architect Â– that could hamper or restrict the owner's activities in constructing a building or in making future changes. Owners would be wise to negotiate alternative language to minimize these risks that provides for the transfer of ownership of the documents and the copyright to the owner, or at least expands upon the license for use provided for in the contract. By taking such precautions, owners can prevent a situation from arising whereby a project is delayed or derailed by design document ownership limitations.
If a story or a photograph is used in a magazine, there may be a copyright notice for the magazine but not for the specific story or photo that you want to use. That’s because the owners of magazines, anthologies, or greatest hits collections in which many different copyrighted works are collected (referred to as “collective works”) can use one copyright notice to protect all the works in the collection. This does not necessarily mean that the magazine owns the copyright in all of the works. It may or may not, depending on the contract with the author or photographer. Copyright Office research may not necessarily help you locate copyright information for these works because they may not be listed separately by title in the records. You may be better off contacting the owner of the collective work directly. The principles for contacting copyright owners are explained in the chapters dealing with specific media (text, artwork, photographs, and so on).
