I noticed on ama Plans Service site they are ‘adding’ RCM plans to their listing. Are they buying the rights or just selling them as a service to the community?

Since the RCM plans seem to have fallen beyond any patent protection (as this thread shows), it sounds like they're just going to sell prints of the RCM plans.

I’m forever wary of the AMA’s intentions.

That won't stop them from trying.

Steve had a bunch of the Model Builder plans on his site and they still asked him to take them down. Fortunately I was able to download them all before that happened...

I wounder where they are getting their plans? I think that some of us would be upset if they got some from RcGroups especially the construction articles and charged for them.

Here’s a screenshot of their page mentioning it. Second paragraph down.

Paragraph 3 would be interesting to analyse alongside David's spreadsheet of his amazing work.....

I know that I am always guilty of being too suspicious - or at least I enjoy playing with conspiracy theories (even if I don't believe them), but I wonder where the pdf files came from?

I was thinking the same thing, but unfortunately the IT crew at AMA forgot to link the PDF. What are the odds that AMA has accidentally duplicated all of our work, shortly after we completed it?

Generally, I feel that often organisations are blamed for what individuals within that corporation have done; my guess (and being in the UK, I will wholly admit to never having had any experience whatsoever with the AMA) would be that if there has been any wholesale use of the work done by David and the myriad of good people here and of course Steve of OZ, then it would be down to an individual within the AMA rather than a concerted policy of the AMA as a whole.

Though [and here's a conspiracy theory for you] it has crossed my mind that there could be the possibility that they may have been approached by a third party who also had managed to accumulate all those very same files by some means and who may have sold them to the AMA..... This is of course pure speculation, has no basis in evidenced facts, your mileage may vary, any resemblance to any persons living or dead is purely coincidental etc etc

I don't have any faith in the AMA's motivation, at all. But since the RCM plans are all out there now, and free, that's fine. I mean since the plans are available from locations like Davids cloud storage setup... I don't think it matters what the AMA do any more with this issue. Ever. The plans simply are out there, and are free, from now on, to anyone who can be bothered to look for them. It is just a fact that anyone who wants to can copy them all, and post them up again on another cloud drive, elsewhere. The AMA can't stop that. Either morally, legally, or practically.

To be clear. I do not believe the AMA claim any rights on the RCM plans. Or ever intend to do so. I think they simply intend to sell them without such, as best they can.

[edit] Doh. No link added. Here is the link to David's most excellent cloud-based RCM repository:
