To follow up with the two previous posts on copyright issues - the New York MTA is offering iPodSubwayMaps the right to redistribute their maps in iPod format for $500. What obviously started out as a hobby has suddenly been throuwn into the world of business, it seems. Not having an iPod myself, I hadn’t bothered to check out the iPodSubwayMaps site until now and am surprised to discover that there are more than 20 subway maps available, including ones of Berlin, Boston, Toronto, Tokyo, Paris, and London. These can be previewed on the site. Essentially it appears that the maps are sliced up versions of the official transit maps - hence the issue around copyright. Compare the sample Toronto map at right to the original, official version (pdf).
