Assuming that's what happened, it can still be considered stealing. Just because you leave your bike out in the middle of your yard, doesn't mean someone else can come into your yard and take the bike. If it's not excplicity shown on a company's web page or linked to it, doesn't mean you can backdoor in and take what you want.

I'm with Robb, I love the videos and can't wait to see what the BGT marketing department has in store for us next. Besides, the concept art might not even be what they are going with.

No, the all the plans were on a page of the website and could be downloaded. Most of them were protected, but two (I believe) weren't protected and could be viewed by anyone. Someone found that page and posted the pics on another forum.

^ Right. Some images got leaked. End of story. I don't think we need to continue discussing this.

Sweet Tweet! For some odd nerdy reason, I would love to take a plant tour of the track manufacturing process. From raw form, to waterjet/laser cutting, weldings, finshing/painting, and finally, riding it (when it's put together of course)
