No offence VoA, but I think you are being idealistic and unrealistic. Probably you will find there are plenty of 'experts' that will say anything if it means they get paid, or even if they get a few seconds of fame. This is, of course, assuming your blanket statement about said 'experts' being in defence of CIG is correct in the first place.

Architects and Engineers pretty much agree and can spot plagiarism or inspiration or an organic design (one that grew from a process).   If it were taken to court the ones that can show the process steps that led to the final design would win (most likely) - and would be in the majority.   Sure - you can have someone "lie" by being paid but if that happens you appeal and get a broader survey to be done (one where its unlikely that either side can be paid off) :)

Like I mentioned - I am an experienced architect and aerospace engineer - and seen this process before resolve itself with other cases (luckily none of my projects) :)

      Selling the listed ships and modules below.

       
      Selling my additional ships and upgrades. All prices are RSI Store Price + 5.5% Paypal Fees. All items are from buybacks.
      I am not selling for profit. Just helping out those in need. As the purchase uses the Paypal credits received via the Paypal invoice, you can be sure there is no undesired grey market credits and all the trouble associated with them - not that I'm peddling in that anyway but it's a good assurance.

      During Happy Hour the devs were mainly just brainstorming ideas for a new Drake ship to add to the lineup. Viewers were allowed to vote on the 'name' of 2 potential ships as well as a Viewer's Choice third entry (and name).
      The viewer's choice from today's live stream was the Drake Kraken 'Scout Carrier'.
      Final vote is up on the RSI forums and can be found here:
      >>  YOU Pick the Next Drake Ship  <<
      A. ENTRY-LEVEL DRAKE SALVAGE SHIP (CODE NAME: VULTURE)
      A one man salvage starter ship, no drones but plenty of on-board storage to help with EVA salvage operations (space for cutters, charges etc) and space in a separate area to store/process the recovered salvage. Mostly designed for the player to EVA out and do the salvage, rather than sit inside and do it with tractor beams/lasers. Small enough to sneak into hostile areas unnoticed to recover fresh salvage.
      B. MULTI-CREW DRAKE EXPLORER (CODE NAME: CORSAIR)
      Drake’s competitor to the Constellation, the rough and ready multi-crew explorer. Differs from the 600i by its crude basic construction and from the Constellation by its lower missile count, but with a third turret to make up for it. Able to transport a vehicle and cargo (think extended/up-scaled Cutlass rear area) faster and more nimble than the others, but like all Drake ships pretty paper thin.
      C. DRAKE SCOUT CARRIER (CODE NAME: KRAKEN)
      Drake’s capital ship entry, space to park and store a few medium ships (up to Freelancer-sized) and transport them around the verse. Serves as a mobile truck stop in function with a small hub of stores (some less than legit) to help restock.

      Ben just revealed on RTV that the Drake Dragonfly is official (we have been pushing for it and it has been a CIG dev favorite for awhile) .... so as of today... we know it will be....
      Drake - Dragonfly
      Now we know it is an official ship.... More info to follow as we get info on the Specs and Concept Art 
      Drake Dragonfly: You don’t so much as climb into the Dragonfly as you do put it on around you. In short, it’s the closest thing to strapping an engine and a weapons mount to your spacesuit… or, as the advertising campaign claims, it’s the closest thing to riding the vacuum yourself. Occupying somewhere in the pantheon between a snub fighter and an Aurora, the Dragonfly is a speedy, maneuverable ultralight designed to be cheaply constructed in large numbers and to be readily customized by hobbyists. Dragonfly’s have become the favorite of a particular brand of enthusiast that frequently gather together to share their modifications, off-track race… and other less legitimate “hobbies.”
