Recommended Posts

However what reason's legal or otherwise would a company like Gulfstream have to demand such action......not trying to be rude just as a pre 1L law student I find it rather interesting that they have such heavy handed legal decrees with the Flight Sim Community....Thanks!! :(

Why not drop them an email? Try marketing and if that is not enough contact legal. :(

Only a few companies have chased developers regarding their aircraft. Gulfstream has been the most aggressive with their 'cease and desist' notices from their lawyers. Threats to sue by a company of that size compared to the average developer house are 1000% effective as the developers have no financial power to defend with. Gulfstream's primary reasoning, near as I can tell... intellectual property rights because their window shapes are patented. Which I find interesting.... didn't know drawing an oval could get me sued. :(

I think I would sue Abacus for how badly their models look.

Quote,.."but it is a 'special' oval having cost millions, no BILLIONS, in development and research ..." People tend to forget that the United States taxpayers subsidized that whole company with Grumman's use of tax dollars to build military aircraft. The G1 and 2 progressed out of that funding. To then go after small developers for making a model, is typical of the greed,and arrogance of corporate America.

What does it say in its letters? I'm be interested to know which rights it claims are being infringed.

Can no one who is interested in the topic contact the Gulfstream source for themselves?
