    This sort of thing is probably more of a patent infringement than copyright, IF the device IS patented. Copyrights are tricky, in that they are automatically granted for any "intellectual property", although mostly written material, music, and works of art. A PCB could be deemed a work of art, but making a single copy for ones own personal use would probably not be in legal violation, and in any case would never be detected by the copyright owner and prosecuted, unless you announced it with sufficient details where it would be noticed.

    Reverse engineering would probably not be a violation if you changed the design sufficiently with your own efforts.

        Have you tried Abacoms Sprint.

        Its looks like a simple pcb layout package ( no built in schematic designer ?) that has the ability to put a photo of a pcb on a plane and lay components over it ,as a feature.(Scanned copies).
