Does anyone know whatever happened to the American Airlines ban on using their logo on flight sim aircraft?

Why has no one responded to this post yet? Does anyone know what is happening with American and the FS Community?

I just recently saw at flightsim.com an AA 767 that they had just released with full logo's. It may have been a 777 also, I'd have to go and look again. But it seems that they don't have a problem with any kind of ban, and I don't think they would risk legitation.

Project Freeware has got lots of AA planes, and they have had them for a couple of years...

I just checked Flightsim.com's database. There are still no AA birds to be found.

The whole thing started when AA signed an agreement with a British software company giving them exclusive rights to the AA trademarks and colors for flightsim use. Flightsim.com recieved a cease and desist letter from the lAAwyers. FS.com and others like it were targeted because they had a "First Class" membership program where users could pay for faster access to the site. FS.com is now on a faster server and doesn't have the login problems that it used to, but they're still selling memberships. Because of that there are no AA a/c on that site.

Sites such as Project Freeware never got letters from AA and continue to add AA birds all the time.

The thing to worry about now are the stories I've been reading here and elsewhere of AA lawyers going to airline memorabilia shows attempting to stop the sale of AA collectibles.
