SQL Server FAQ - Who Is the Owner of a Schema

Who Is the Owner of a Schema?
When you create a schema in a database, SQL Server will assign a owner (a database user) to this schema.
If your login name is mapped to the owner of a schema at the database level, you have the full permission
on all objects in this schema.
The following tutorial exercise shows you how to see who is the owner of a schema:
-- Login with "sa"
SELECT s.name, u.name AS owner
FROM sys.schemas s, sys.database_principals u
WHERE s.principal_id = u.principal_id;
The last query shows that schame "fyi" is owned by "dbo".
