The text applies to transmissions on frequencies allocated to the amateur 
service and the amateur-satellite service.  Manufacturing of equipment is 
not related at all.

I guess the biggest problem for me is determining who "owns" the 
stuff.  That's an issue we probably should not get in to.  Historically, 
all data produced by an OSCAR type satellite has been considered to be open 
for all.

If I may suggest as a constructive way to conclude this issue, the AO-40 
international program board could take up the issue to see (1) if they 
prefer to have all data in the public domain or, if not, then (2) who is 
the owner of the data and what limitations the owner wishes to have on 
copying the data.

Hope this helps.
