A client of mine, a charity, wanted to use the map on their website www.freresdeshommes.lu. I'm not entirely sure why this particular projection was important, they contacted Oxford Cartographers (previously mentioned in this thread) but they want to charge £400 for the licence for one year and a further £225 for the supply of the map in the required format (I'm still waiting to hear exactly what process they were formatting the map to that would justify £225).
Now looking to see if there are alternatives.
As others have noted, you have an easy alternative. Anyone
can project country outline data to the Gall/Peters/Stereographic/
projection, certainly to the resolution intended. As long as you do not copy the look and feel of the Oxford artwork (i.e. the continents in their separate hue, with tint differences amongst nations), you should be fine (caveat
: I am not a lawyer, this is not legal advice, please don't sue me if Oxford throws a fit). Oxford can copyright their unique design
of the map (i.e. the combination of color, type, arrangement of elements on the page etc.) so you can't just copy the artwork and resell it. And they could also base a claim on infringement of "trade dress" (i.e. a third party making a map that others think is theirs, thereby hurting sales of their item), or at least they could in the USA. But the projection (and all projections) are public domain.
Heck, if I could get MaPublisher to work right (insert a separate complaint here about MP7's projection software which to my mind is a step backwards)
, I'd do it and post an AI file here!
