Hi Brains Trust,

Was interested in hearing thoughts on students who want to modify existing patterns in a 3/4 SAT, attributing sources of IP.

If a student identifies a highly complex design for which a core "type" exists, and looks to it with a view to using it as a template for future design work, is it essential that they work from scratch to develop their working drawings, or can they adapt existing designs with full reference to the IP and copyright of the original source.

I have my suspicions, but I'd like to canvas how others approach this issue.

Kind regards,

David Pitt Teacher
