Dear Mr. Goldin,
Please find enclosed copies of the correspondence I have had with
NASA, commencing with my letter to you of March 29,
1995, and ending with my letter to Mr. Alan J. Kennedy of November
You will see that I have had no constructive response to my letter
to you of March 29 and no response at all to my letter to you of September
20, 1995. It is apparent that Mr. Kennedy is unable to cope with the
important aspects of proprietary and intellectual property rights.
I find it very strange that the U.S. government is prepared to
threaten China with a trade war over proprietary and intellectual property
rights for some American companies, but that NASA refuses to acknowledge
these important Burnelli rights with regard to the McDonnell
Douglas megajet project which has been funded by NASA. May I please
have an explanation as well as a response to my letter to you, dated September
Thank you and best regards.
