I think the rub is the fact that the Feds own the document (the paper), while the company has the intellectual rights. Univair told me straight out that they got busted for overstamping a federal document with the aircraft serial number. The only way that would be OK is if the STC was granted for just one airplane rather than a series.

I'm sure the companies like it the "old way", but I think that ship has sailed.
