Topic - Who owns route descriptions and other guidebook data?

humptydumpty - on 23 Oct 2013
Not sure if this is a legal question or more an ethical question, but who owns the info in guidebooks?

My guess is that the route descriptions would come from either the original log of the routes (so legally at least, copyright would belong to the FA), or the guidebook author/editor would write his own description (so would own copyright).

Presumably topos are owned or licensed by the guidebook published; what about route names and grades?
