Potential copyright violation[edit]

The main paragraph of the section titled "Role of CAN in Commercial Air Transport and General Aviation Aircraft" is a verbatim copy of material from this page. Based on the style of the wording and the structure of the initial article, I suspect that much of the remaining article has been copied from some ARINC documentation. The standards document is avaiable only for purchase on the site so I cannot tell if it has been drawn from the standards doc. -- Whpq (talk) 22:01, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

The writer of this article is one of the main authors of the ARINC825 specification. He is also owner or at least co-owner of the mentioned page. So I expect, that he is willing to provide the necessary rights to wikipedia, as soon as he is back here. --JuergenKlueser (talk) 20:21, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

As the author of this article I confirm what was said above by Juergen Klueser. I am a founding member of the ARINC CAN Technical Working Group (TWG) that developed the ARINC 825 standard and own www.arinc825.com. The text in the article contains the intellectual property of the entire ARINC CAN TWG which was involved writing it; all drawings were made by myself. The TWG agrees to release these contributions under the CC-BY-SA 3.0 License and the GFDL. This is an overview of ARINC 825; it is correct that the full standard has to be purchased from ARINC.BavarianAviator (talk) 19:20, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
