Avanti / BuildingSMART - step forward or electronic handcuffs?


I have been following the development of this for a while now and am beginning to get concerned about the motive of this "movement". My concern lies with IPR of the design and its ownership once abstracted to a server. In addition to design, the abstraction goes beyond just drawings and includes programmes, cost plans and the like.

Has anyone else come across either of these and do they agree with my sentiment that this could be disastorous for our industry if it isnt developed right? Or do you believe it to be the quantum step forward we so desperatley need...
