Piracy alert. It's no wonder freeware is drying up.

Recommended Posts

I recently released the voyager, and a few days later my voyager materialized on several other Flightsim sights. The only difference with mine, and the other version were the readme file, in which a fellow by the name of Ron Watchings took complete credit for the work. www.va-works.com/pirate.html to see the comparison readme files.I would reccomend that all freeware developers look around the different flightsim sites, and make sure that their work hasn't been taken credit for by other People.This quite frankly makes me sick.Al

Sad state of affairs. Rob Barandregt had the same problem with his taxispeed gauge when some "no mark" uploaded it taking the credit for it.All you can do is notify the webmasters and hope for the best. I wouldn't waste your time writing to FSPlanet if it's up there though. They make their living off publishing files without authorisation.

I haven't looked - but if what you're saying is true, you may have a clear case of copyright violation.Look into it.Andrew

It is pathetic. What purpose does it serve to claim another person's work, anyhow? I know freeware developers recieve a lot of gripes in their e-mails about silly stuff in their work. Maybe Mr. Watchings or whatever the idiot's name is would like a bombardment of e-mails with silly questions about "his" aircraft release....BTW, the B307 is great! Thanks for your work!http://bfu.avsim.net/sigpics/logo75b.gif
