8. Did you know that the building code itself is copyright protected?

 

Manufactures of widgets sit on the code council to get their widgets made mandatory (see Simpson Strong-Tie). The code council is a private consortium and the book of conclusions they reach is a prohibitively expensive copyrighted work (the local government can't reproduce it) and is the law that governments adopt by reference.

It's the law. No it's not on the web and no, I can't give you a copy. Your fine for violating it is $800, you can pay by check or cash.
