Guys, if we redraw these drawings, we can post them; only the physical instance is copyrighted.

PDFs of the EVTM are illegal; pdfs of our reproductions are not.

We could make people that only want to be here to sell parts make drawings for us, to be able to post parts for sale. :zdevil:

I don't quite understand the copyright of a picture of an alternator. I mean, I can take pictures of dozens of alternators and post them with descriptions of what they are, right? This kind of crap always ticked me off.

I mean, I see the point in the way the copyright laws of computer programs changes as a result of what Gates did to the programmers. He wrote all his programs that "looked and felt" like the originals (ie Word = WordPerfect, Excel = Lotus123, Access = DBaseIV, etc, etc) so the law was rewritten that even if you wrote your own program from scratch, if it looked and felt like another program (like same keystrokes), you were guilty of copyright infringement.

But 20-30 year old alternators can't be photographed? That's a lot different. Maybe I'm just stupid, but I don't see how any judge can take a site down because I photographed my Thunderbird and it's various parts. Go after someone who cares, Ford, cause he ain't here!

The site is back up now under the name OldFuelInjection.com

Ford was getting pissy about their name.

I didnt know it was a big deal.
I found that new name worked last week by clicking on my FFI bookmark and figured ford had called them on it. The outcome in court might not have gone in ford's favor as it's used as a label not a brand but there's no point in fighting it... too expensive

Interesting thing is that lawyers from one or the other sides must have okayed the url for a redirect. Since you can still use your bookmarks.. (the url would have been inop for a few days whiel they figured that out}.
http://www.fordfuelinjection.com/?p=82

So I would BET it's a friendly pro-forma thing. Ford didnt really object to that site.

They want a clear record and paper trail that they can point to if they're trying to shut down other sites that arent so beneficial to them and their business.

This is just a taste, though, of what might happen if SOPA passes congress. It's being fought right now ... you guys think it's only about music and video content?

heh.. For all you liberals.. you might follow the campaign money and see who's who in this. And wonder why GoDaddy was FOR it. before they were against it. Follow the money

The way I look at it - Yah, they got my back. Right in their sights.

The Repubs are the ones loading the howlitzer :diablo:

I don't trust ANY politician since Edwin Edwards got arrested and sent to jail. Now, HE was honestly corrupt - he'd tell you his price, and he stayed bought!
