Just trying to figure out if I can use old maps as a base for OSM. During my
research I have found an OSI site www.irishhistoricmaps.ie which provides the
same (pre 1900) for sale. But its terms state that all maps are copyright of
I found this in the Statute book
36.—Sections 24 to 35 shall not apply to Government or Oireachtas
copyright or to the copyright of prescribed international organisations.
(4) Government copyright in a work shall expire 50 years from the end of the
calendar year in which the work was made.
Anyone got any more information on this?
