TDM Scenery Design Removes Santiago From Sale Due to Ongoing Dispute

TDM are at the center of another developer dispute resulting in the removal of a product from sale.

TDM Scenery Design has confirmed on Facebook that they have removed Santiago Airport (LEST) from sale due to an ongoing dispute with another undisclosed developer.

The team confirmed that the dispute is over “a conflict of intellectual property rights” in the materials used by the developer. TDM Scenery Design did not go into detail as to exactly what the issue is or how they will resolve the issue. Until the dispute is resolved, the airport product will be suspended in all shops.

For those customers who have already purchased the airport, you will be able to download and install any further updates. Speaking of updates, TDM Scenery Design has released version 1.10 of the airport which adds jetways to Santiago Airport (LEST).

This is not the first time that TDM Scenery Design has been at the center of a copyright dispute. Back in September 2020, TDM Scenery Design was said to have used files owned by LatinWings. This issue arrose when it was noticed that files used in these products shared a large resemblance and TDM Scenery Design owner Trino Rojas had to clarify why this was the case. At the time, Rojas claimed that the work was similar as he was the original developer when he was working at Latinwings and ultimately owned the files. That dispute was eventually resolved between the two developers. It’s unknown if a similar issue has happened with this new dispute.
