Default who owns the rights to fly patterns?

I've been thinking about creating an app (Android and probably Iphone/Ipad) that allowed for user submitted fly patterns/pictures/recipes. But, I am troubled that people may submitted copywrite/trademarked patterns.

Are patterns like copper johns owned? Obviously its not hard to reverse engineer so I am not sure how far copy protection would extend - Reverse engineering - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Just seems stupid that in todays age, I need to have several books containing many of the same patterns to have a good collection. Seems like the perfect problem a tablet would solve.

And if this already exists I would love to know about it.
