It really surprised me when I received an unexpected PM in malsingmaps from sunn on Sept 19.
But I just took for granted by reading the reasons behind the setting of MFM from antyong.

Only today, I got the chance to do some research from antyong blog and also google to learn that there is a serious clash in MSM that leads to the establishment of MFM.

Coupled months ago I just bought few serious hardware and software to help me build this GPS hobby but it really make me uncomfortable that the original intention of MSM was violated by the seniors.

I personally do not agree that we sell MSM maps simply because it is owned by the community. As simple as that. May be the seniors may say to juniors like me that I am not entitled for the royalty or cash, etc since I only contribute tracks and POIs while they are the one who compile the maps, but please remember, without the juniors like us, you will just compile blank, white maps!

Anyway, bravo to antyong and the others who still consistent with the original intention of MSM by setting up this MFM.

antyong wrote:The MSM Councilors (sabre23t, jaguar, trajet, pauchai) can confirm some of the below:
- We considered selling unlock codes for RM50 x 300 per month last year. I vetoed.
- The MNC car manufacturer deal is RM150 per map. 100 maps per month. No agreement todate.
- Selling data to Mapking competitor for RM30+k + small amount per licence + shares if IPO. Have to stop releasing Mapking. Didn't bother to discuss.
- I was told of a potential 6-figure deal earlier from Adil's co. Not sure of status.

So it was true when i visited one vendor was told they pay ' royalties" to MSM to have the lastest map install in their unit when they sell to customer. I was in doubt back then. on the contary without effrot of the contributor and mapper be it malfree or malsing don think Garmin can gain their marker share in such a short span of time.
