I.e., a 'verbal' or 'visual' exchange of information is not protected, or would be very difficult to defend in court.

    But then, I'm not a lawyer (but read what Lawyers say about this).

    And their corporate council's paralegal's collect the NDA sheets with the names, file them in a computer someplace, toss in some other miscellaneous clerical tasks, work up an invoice for a few thousand dollars, and all is good.

    Yup, 50 year old engine design...no changes for all those years, much like Werner ladder from Greenville.
    Most of the cost is in lawyers.[/QUOTE]

    No way they will update it, that would be admitting that the original design was not up to snuff. That will open yourself to more lawsuits.[/QUOTE]

    There have been some new engines that have come out in the last 20 years, but the cost to re-qualify them in a 40 year old airplanes is too high. Rotax has a set of popular engines that are used on 2 seaters (and smaller). There are also some diesel engines that are direct replacements. If/when 100LL leaded gas is outlawed all those old engines will be replaced or reworked to use unleaded or diesel.
