That's very interesting. I've been working on the history of Regina and have been using the map in WBH. I've been wondering what the copyright position of that map was; whether I'd be able to do a new rendering of the original map, maybe with added detail (I've always assumed that I couldn't just copy it), or whether I would have to do a completely new map with differently shaped continents if I were to have any hope of publishing it. It would be a pity to overwrite the original map, but a history without a few maps is a sorry thing...

Except that I still didn't get paid for the material which means it's still mine? (Not that I still have the 5.25 inch floppies it was on).
