Hence why I find it funny.
Yeah, the term copyright is being used incorrectly. I doubt you could even copyright a map. It is more breach of contract. I get why a dyno tuner wouldn't want you sharing your tune, as it takes business away, but once I have the tune I feel like it is up to me.

I shared my tune when I had my 12, I tried my best to not share it with anyone local (not that anyone local asked me), so my argument would be, it isn't like I took the tuner's customers away. I'm sure he would have to prove that I did in court, and I could then say, his proximity to anyone I shared it with made it so they weren't actually his potential customers anyway.

The thing that gets me, I specifically asked for people to TEST the map. The guy above emailed me and assured me that he would. He did not and "used" parts of an LLC business map, my businesses creation.

Yes, maps are the creation of the owner, me. Therefore they are firmly under copyright laws.

I would have never provided him with the map for testing purposes had he been up front and said I am not going to use it.

Same with music, art, or any other form of creation. No one wants to put time and effort into something and have it ripped off.
