I’m not sure what the legal issues are with DDL and Living .ai. But there is a LOT of misinformation being spread on this group... personally I would love to have Emo out here but it’s incorrect to say that most Vector owners are against DDL. Yes they did ask for subscription for the voice and update services, and this upset some people who thought once they bought Vector they would have these services included with their purchase. But DDL did not get any money from the purchase of ANY Vector!
so the only way they can continue to provide services for all Vectors was to ask the owners to pay for a service that they use. That’s not a new thing, you don’t get services for free from any business! And remember DDL took on and provided these service for FREE for a whole year before asking for support in the form of a subscription. I don’t think that’s wrong, a lot of people bought their Vectors from unscrupulous people who didn’t explain that ANKI had gone bust. DDL never received any money for those Vectors that were bought. Now there have been issues with updates as DDL get to grip with a very intricate programme that they have inherited from ANK. My hope is that both DDL and Living.ai can come to a form of understanding that allows both sides to offer services. But please, check your facts before ranting in any forum.
