formal response from Eagle Dynamics:

Lausanne, 14 May 2019.

The Eagle Dynamics group, headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, confirms that one of its employees has been jailed in the State of Utah (USA) on charges of seeking to procure, export and sell restricted US fighter jet manuals, in particular the F-16.

Eagle Dynamics confirms that it was not involved in any way in the actions of its employee who acted in a purely private context and for his own personal interests.

The Company develops all of its DCS aircraft game modules exclusively on the basis of publicly available information and has never used nor tried to obtain any classified information.

The Company launched an internal investigation into the actions of its employee, and found nothing in the company's records that relates to the facts that are being held against him. The investigation confirmed in particular that no company resources were used and that no export restricted documents were obtained or stored within the company's systems. Furthermore, the Company confirms that the employee was not involved in any of the work or research pertaining to the development of the Company's upcoming F-16 module.

The development of the F-16 and other modules currently in the pipeline will continue in order to further enhance the simulation experience of DCS World. These events will not affect Eagle Dynamics' commitment to its users and faithful community.

Thank you,
Matt Wagner
Senior Producer, Eagle Dynamics SA

If ebay is selling the manuals maybe they should be arrested.

Common, corporations are people, they have rights! Way more rights than actual citizens.

I agree that the loot box ban bill has no chance of passing, but Pachter's statement against it is bizarre. He is apparently focusing on the "pay-to-win" verbage of the bill, saying that a ban on 'pay to win microtransactions is ridiculous'. Which it would be, were that what the bill was trying to do. It is aiming to curb predatory gambling tactics aimed to get players (in this case, players under 18) spending an unhealthy amount of money through compulsion and addiction. The bill itself is indeed worded poorly - What do you expect from out of touch old guys in power - but from what I can see Pachter completely missed the point on this one.
