But surely copyrighting the construction manual doesn't stop someone making a boat they same way, if they've read the manual.  My mum makes a lovely chocolate cake straight from a Delia Smith copyrighted book.

In many respects a Class Association is nothing more than a fan club or a classic car owners club.  Indeed the Merlin Rocket calls itself an Owner's Club rather an a Class Association.  In that sense it is solely up to the club members to decide who is eligible to be a member it is quite feasible to start an association that allows genuine Lasers, fake Lasers, Solos, Supernovas and Aeros to join.  In fact, given that they have so much in common such an association would be no bad thing in unifying the sport.  So you could, in theory, attempt a (hostile) takeover of many class associations under the guise of a unifying umbrella.  What I am not clear about is whether members of such an association have a *right* to be able to host/enter competitions held under RRS.  Do the RYA or WS have to power to stop an association using the rules?

Perhaps we should strike a blow for fair play and join the association, it says it's free.

It can go some way to stopping it... The class rules say the boat has to be built according to the construction manual, and if you're licensed the construction manual the terms of that license could include confidentiality (you can't show it to somebody else) and restrict the ability to copy parts or the manual as a whole.

That way, the only people who get to see the manual are the ones you've licensed it to.  Nobody other than them will have been able to read the manual.

So have LDCA changed the rules to remove the requirement that Lasers be built according to the construction manual?

No but they have removed the requirement for Bruce Kirbys name to appear on the plaques.

Interesting to see JimCs thread on the Sunfish, seems LP are doing the same with that as they did with the Laser.
