Purchase of Intellectual Property

As a qualified naval architect and engineer, the author may on occasion make available building plans and manuals for sale, then correctly deemed as a sharing of intellectual property. While these documents will be based on years of experience and sound engineering principles, the designer has no control over the material used, the workmanship put it or even the manner of use of the final product.   So a Waiver must first be read and accepted, and then hand signed, scanned and returned.  This frees the designer (and his heirs) of all future responsibility and is the only way that such plans can be sold and made available..  Such waivers are standard in the industry for the reasons given.
