1st Cir: Implied Non-Exclusive License Survives Death of Architect

The First Circuit dealt with the question of whether an architect had granted an implied non-exclusive license, and if so, whether such non-exclusive implied license survived his death.

The architect had been a partner in a group that developed a property the development of which was planned according to his original plans.  Then he died.

Could the partners use the plan?  Yes, the circumstances implied a non-exclusive license.  Do such licenses survive death?  Yes.
