Maps - Copyright
Advice was sought from Ordnance Survey about copyright concerning old maps.
OS replied as follows:
"I can confirm you may reproduce any Ordnance Survey material that is over 50 years old from the end of the calendar year in which the map was published without any royalty payment being payable to Ordnance Survey. Also no formal agreement is required to make these reproductions.
However we do ask that you include an acknowledgement as follows:
"Reproduced from (insert the year of publication) Ordnance Survey map with the kind permission of Ordnance Survey" or alternatively, if there is not enough space we will accept "Reproduced from the (year of publication) Ordnance Survey map".
I trust the information is of use to you.
Thank you for contacting us."
