Just to add a little more to this whole thing. A reader asked a question similiar to this, “Can I make something from plans in your magazine and sell it for profit.” The editors response was basically if you can sell it go for it, but you can’t download and sell the actual plans as they are copywrited.

While the magizine didn’t give a limit on the number you could make and sell, which wasn’t the question anyway, I have order plans that do put limits on how many I could sell. One plan I ordered said that I could make up to 120 and if I planned on making more contact them for royalty pricing. Another plan said I could only make 5.

Because of the huge differences I try to come up with my own plans using pictures for inspiration. The only time I’ll order a plan is if it is EXACTLY what I want to build.
