From my stand-point-of-view as gps-user myself, after Garmin-MSM complied map is born, MSM still own the maps, its future release and rights etc. And all these is done without any $$$ involment.
And indeed this benefit all garmin GPS(mal/sin) users eventually in long term...
I do understand the mappers of MFM are angry as their maps are used/copied without prior permission.
And Antyong: since you have been retired from MSM and pass your hardwok to MSM, I am sure indirectly you have agreed the rights of use of your hardwork to the discretion of MSM.
And of course I do not know why MFM is born after antyong retired from MSM.
I think this is my current though so far....
OK...Target board ready...shoot ...
Your thoughts are wrong because you made so many assumptions.
You said "i am sure indirectly you have agreed the rights of use of your hardwork to the discretion of MSM". I wonder how can you be sure. I had announced then that Sunn will take over all my maps. I passed a copy my KL and EPM maps to Wsian as backup.
You didn't bother to find out that NPM and PRK belongs to Dynamix (OngCC). I am not sure if he had passed his mp to Wsian and told him "Take it and use as you like". But his mp had to be passed to Wsian for map compilation. Tell me how does the data end up in Garmin-MSM?
I don't want to tell old stories again about why MFM was borned. If you see nothing wrong with what MSM had done, it is unlikely that you will accept any reason here. So don't worry, be happy
