The GRANDMA CD-ROM is copyrighted. Does this mean that I can't incorporate sections of it into my own genealogical research without asking permission?
The copyright statement on the GRANDMA CD-ROM applies only to the CD or
GRANDMA database as a whole. We don't want people reproducing the entire CD or
genealogy database and distributing it to others. The copyright does not,
however, apply to the individual pieces of genealogical information themselves.
That information was gathered from a wide variety of public domain sources, and
we hold no copyright on it. You are free to take information on specific family
lines and incorporate it into your own work.
