    Thank you.

    That is why I no longer distribute the work I do on websites such as this. SKAI has taken work that I've done and repackaged it and called it their own. Like others, I've been threatened with legal action by SKAI for asking them to stop stealing.

    Since the FS community seems to no longer care about piracy - I, and many others, have chosen to no longer share our work with the FS community. It is just for my friends now, who I know will not redistribute the items. There are some amazing AI and other FS freeware out there - which the general FS community no longer has access to - thanks to SKAI.

    "Freeware" does NOT mean 'in the General Domain". The author still holds a valid copyright and legally you must abide by his/her wishes. Agreed, there are no monetary damages to sue for, but it is still not legal to treat freeware as something you can do anything with.

    If you are the type that tries to "get away with things", then feel free, there will be no material penalty. This is an unfortunate trend in this hobby, and has already lead to many freeware authors either going payware or leaving completely. You are just continuing this trend - enjoy what you get.

    I did not suggest that freeware is something that anyone can do anything with. What I said was

    "Far as the legality of the SKAI package goes, freeware is freeware, and unless you are taking someones models or textures and reworking them to pass off as your own then there is no question of the work being illegal in the true sense of the word."

    To take an existing set of AI models and paints and place them into a package along with flightplans can hardly be called piracy specially when the package author/s even go to the trouble to state exactly where the original set came from, not claiming the work as their own.

    I do however agree that doing so without gaining the permission of the original file owner is a breach of the freeware licence where such additional distribution is not allowed without authorisation.

    It IS piracy, just a different kind. As I said, your attitude is why Reggie and dozens of others no longer post freeware. Enjoy...
