Article: Royalties Over Plane Model Makers

Fri Feb 18, 2005 12:39 am

From today's Philadelphia Inquirer:

Although the article primarily focuses on military aircraft models; what's everyone's thoughts about plane manufacturer's and airlines receiving royalties for models being made and sold? Does Boeing, Airbus, etc. and the airlines receive royalties for every model produced by Herpa, Gemini Jets, etc. bearing the likeness?

The editorial from the latest PC Pilot magazine is talking about aircraft manufacturers looking to get a slice of the money from add on software for Flight Sim.

Just goes to show, it doesn't matter how much you have, you still want more!!
