Seriously Gaz ?
OK, good post, but can the adults continue discussing the serious legal and moral issues raised earlier ?

How come you've never mentioned this unit before?

Permission is then granted under its own license, to be used in commercial derivative works

I'm sure he can record (or every else can themselves) the appropriate sound files for the position reports, although a bit of a monotonous task. I'm sure someone else will record some and make them available if you were to stop them being used.
I'd have to ask (because I really don't know) where did you get the aircraft data for PAW.db that he has used? I'm guessing that it was freely available from some source, and again I'm sure someone will compile the same info if you were to stop them being used. It seems to have OGN/FLN data in there as well, is there a common source somewhere? OGN is free to use as far as I can tell from the the licence it is under, so long as it is attributed somewhere.

All he's done is rename the paw.db file to icao.db
MD5 (paw.db) = 4edcdfafb056030955f9b7cee0ba3220
MD5 (icao.db) = 4edcdfafb056030955f9b7cee0ba3220
That is actually even worse because even though what was originally done was done without permission, at least there was an attribution.
