The difference between cutting off welding cables and taking someone's "intellectual property" is like this...
If someone steals your cables, you no longer have them.
No matter how many times someone steals your intellectual property, you still have it.
You know what Cable TV companies, purveyors of plans, and prostitutes have in common? After they sell their product, they've still got their product!
Any other time, the customer owns the product after they buy it.

As I have previously stated, I will not respond or send these plans to anyone, ever! Stop pm'ing me thinking you can get them, and that I'm some kind of weasel that says one thing on the public forum, but does another in private. I take pride in my honesty.
I have already stated that I was "giving" these plans away without considering that it was stealing.
When the copyright owner of the plans politely brought this to my/our attention, I immediately stopped giving the plans away.
I have been to the owner’s website today, and the plans are still available, and they are still only $22! (Read the rest of the post to find his website).
Regardless of your opinion on whether or not he stole the idea by coping another product, he owns the copyright to these plans that he created by reverse engineering the original, therefore, I cannot give them away...period.
So man-up, spend 22 bucks and buy the plans from the original provider.
It's the right thing to do
The difference between No One. and No. One is where you put the period. John Force
