Welcome to Just Answer! My name isXXXXX very much enjoy what I do and I hope that you will benefit from this information.
Much like architectural plans, it appears that these wood cutout patterns can be copyrighted. Before turning over a design, you would need to enter into a licensing agreement in exchange for a fee with the user. This agreement would spell out the scope of the user's authority to use the patterns and designs.
If you want to be able to sue for violations of your copyrights, you need to register them with the U.S. Copyright Office. See link above.
If you need more clarification or follow up information, please feel free to write back as there is no extra charge. Otherwise, please click on the ACCEPT button. Even if you have put in your payment information, I receive no credit for my time unless you press "ACCEPT".
Sometimes the law does not give you the outcome that you may have anticipated. Please understand that this is not the attorney's fault. We are assuming that you are paying for an honest and professional opinion.
