Had a look at the FlightProSim site, guess what I found...

Postby skyop » Wed Jul 21, 2010 2:21 am

Just for kicks I had a look at the FlightProSim (a rip-off commercial copycat of FlightGear for those of you that don't know) homepage. I found three "testimonies" stolen from the FlightGear review on Southend Linux Wiki. If you scroll to the bottom of the FlightGear review you'll notice that the content is licensed under Creative Commons CC-BY-NC-SA.

I'm no legal expert, but I'm pretty sure that the FlightProSim con artist is violating the BY, the NC, and the SA.

I suppose we should contact the owner of Southend Linux Wiki...

FPS site wrote:FlightProSim is proudly part of the Open Source community and is based on the world renown FlightGear project. This means FlightProSim is in constant development and keeps getting better and better. If you require further information or want to help develop FlightProSim further please have a look at our Developers Area.

Yeah... the extreme hatred and legal explorations against the FPS project coming from us DEFINITELY means that we proudly accept FlightProSim into our project :roll: (ah well, at least he MENTIONED us in bigger text this time)
