In re: iPod maps draw copyright threats

Interesting article in Wired on subway maps that were made useable on the iPod by a New York man. All he did was cut up their image that they provided on the web at ipodsubwaymaps.com and make it useable on the ipod (clearly a very useful idea as shown by the number of downloads). However NY and SF transportation folks weren’t happy and wanted it taken down. He has since created his own versions of the maps (can’t copyright facts remember, you can copyright arrangement and selection however) and he believes that this will get around the potential legal problems.
