In this case the court took the position that the non-transfer of economic copyright in a draft building plan did not constitute a breach of the contract of services for designing a construction project if this condition had not been explicitly agreed between the parties. It followed that the transfer of economic copyright must be separately agreed upon in a contract of services. In its judgment the court confirmed that a draft building plan is copyrightable subject matter.
