‘Airbus X’ Flight Simulator Game Maker’s Copyright Suit Alleges Infringing BitTorrent Downloads


Aerosoft GMBH, the German software company that makes the ‘Airbus X’ game, add-on program to Microsoft’s Flight Simulator, sued a host of unknown ‘Does’ in federal court, claiming the defendants engaged in copyright infringement via peer-to-peer (‘P2P’) file-sharing of plaintiff’s game.

The Airbus X might have been a game that convicted al Qaeda conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui would have liked to play, given his self-avowed goal of piloting Boeing or Airbus ‘Big Birds.’

Aerosoft filed its lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, allegedly because at least one of the unknown defendants resides in the state and is said to have engaged in copyright infringement there.
