Jeppesen (a division of Boeing) is huge in the flight planning marketplace. Their technology pre-dates FlightPrep.
Unfortunately for Flight Prep and fortunately for general aviation it is a pretty small community; I can't believe that this company won't be hurt by the negative publicity and commentary on their boneheaded tactics.
AOPA should weigh in on this.
