I’m just wondering if it’s permitted to use the old topographic maps found on sites like poehali.org for Eastern Europe.
I’ve read the section found here:
and it says - "Operators of these sites often claim a new copyright for their scans. Whether this is valid, or whether arguments similar to those in Bridgeman v Corel would apply, is arguable and may well vary by jurisdiction. "
So does that mean that it’s forbidden to use these maps?
