I have been reading a lot about the Cubcrafters’ complaint (Cub vs. Cub, Dec. 2, 2005 issue). I have read in history books that the Wright brothers were very concerned that someone would copy them and they filed for patents and tried other avenues to stifle competition. This competition is what makes better products and better sometimes means less expensive. If this ends in a more affordable aircraft for the general aviation community, then bring it on! Better yet, let’s tie this up in litigation until the words MADE IN CHINA appear on yet another American icon.
