      The reason I asked about these is that I have all three versions
of those disks.   My question pertains as  to what I'm permitted to do
with them.  If one strictly interprets (and I'm not a lawyer, nor have
I ever played one on TV) copyright law, I can only use them within the
license I bought from Mike M. on any installations of pocketAPRS which
I personally use.

      On the other hand, since these disks are no longer being produced
and pocketAPRS isn't undergoing further development or support,  can I
"give" a copies of several maps from these disks to a fellow ham which
(s)he would then use solely on their installation of pocketAPRS?  With
the above argument, I think not. 73
