    Yeah because Ford would never build a ringer car.... :rolleyes:

    So let me get this straight, old technology is good for an engine, but not so good for a suspension. Ok, sure, that makes sense. :rolleyes:

    There is so much retard in this thread it hurt to even skim through it. :bash:

    I finally made it back to the East Coast (from the trip to SEMA and Death Valley), but I'm still not quite home. A few days ago I had a chance to go through my email and noticed that Jamal Hameedi had replied to and email I had sent him. Here was the original message I sent:


    Here's is the reply from Ford's Global Performance Vehicle Chief Engineer:

    ^ While that is an awesome and professional response from Ford...

    ...All I read is that the GM guys are a bunch of clowns for making a big deal out of 'Ring times'. :lol:

    Didn't he imply earlier that Ford would make as many as people wanted or one short of demand?

    Thank you SVT. you strike my youtube account with a copyright strike yet you too upload videos that don't belong to you like the z28 at the nurumbring. Talk about hipocrisy!

    Actually, SVTP's use of the GM videos falls squarely within the domain of fair use. However, YouTube seems to feel as though your video (which was in essence a poor attempt at copying our work) does not. Please refrain from infringing upon SVTP's intellectual property rights in the future.

    Youtube? That was not youtube but a direct claim from someone from this site as stated in the image "Travis Hill". I don't have a problem like I said, and I was not stealing anyone's property. In the video, I provided the sources of where I had found those videos plus how I was not benefiting in anyway from it. I was not aware that you had a video of the two gt500 and camaro together and even if you do. Why does you using a video from GM falls withing fair use and me using one from Ford does not?

    Mr. Hill, SVTP's General Counsel, made the complaint to YouTube on behalf of SVTP. Since you did not receive a copy of the video in question from SVTP, as we did not distribute it to any outlets other than YouTube, you were in fact using a stolen copy (which was undoubtedly illicitly downloaded from YouTube). You had no ownership interest in the video and no right to re-upload it, hence why YouTube found in our favor.

    Further, your belief that you received no benefit from the video is irrelevant. Infringement upon our property rights is a detriment to SVTP. As such, any such infringement will be met with any level of legal response we deem necessary.

    Finally, GM made their videos available to members of the automotive press and their dealers. By doing so they opened the doors for the type of comparison we presented, which is part-and-parcel to our fair use defense.
