What rights does the 'owner' of my drawings (they were sold to me when I purchased the rest of my equipment) have in regards restricting my use of the drawings? Can I 1) Use them to make a copy of the equipment, so that I can sell one to my neighbor? 2) Use them to make a copy of the equipment, so that I have two? 3) Use them to make replacement parts to fix it when it breaks/wears? 4) Loan them to another vendor so that he can make replacement parts to fix the equipment when it breaks/wears? And similarly, same questions as above, but instead of having the drawings supplied by the vender that he 'owns', I make my own drawings by measuring the parts.
