Jump to navigation Jump to search

Paulhan explains why he should not be prevented from flying because of the Wright Brothers' wing warping patent. His Blériot doesn't use wing warping. He thinks that Farman airplanes don't infringe on the patent either.

This article is paired with Ludlow, 1910, Criticism of the court's decision of Feb. 17th in the Wright-Paulhan suit, by one of Paulhan's counsel.
