Embarrassed by the SCOC's lack of technical understanding ...

---------------- 8< ---------------------

Wednesday’s ruling involved Equustek Solutions Inc., a Vancouver-based manufacturer of networking devices that allow complex industrial equipment made by one manufacturer to communicate with the equipment of another, a kind of inter-linking technology.

In 2011 it got into a messy dispute when its distributor, Datalink Technologies Gateways Inc., headed by Morgan Jack, began to re-label one of the products and passed it off as its own. Equustek claims Datalink then acquired some of its confidential technology and began to manufacture copycat products. Sued by Equustek, Datalink first denied the accusations, then fled the province, and continued to carry on business, selling products all over the world from an unknown location.

The allegations have not been proven in court , but several court orders were issued against Datalink to stop selling Equustek inventory until the allegations could be tested.

Sure, DataLink are bad guys but it is outrageous that while " ...The allegations have not been proven in court ... " the Supreme Court of Canada rules on this case in the first place.

Further, as a Canadian, I am embarrassed that the SCOC has so little technical acumen that they think this ruling is in any way enforceable.

Don't be breathing in that crap !!

The smoke/vapours pouring out of anything LiION/LiPO powered are extremely toxic and should be avoided.

This warning is often not clearly spelled out in news articles.

Re: Perhaps "geo-fencing" isn't quite the correct term...

It is very important to correctly set the vertical component lest the drone bangs into the trees between it and place of launch.

This happened to my Brother at a golf course ... it headed back to him OK but it didn't climb to a safe height (above the trees) first.
