    Ted, you wrote:
    "Regretfully I can't link the HMS Chatham PDF into the NavL via a direct posting because it exceeds the 3MB limit."

    Now Ted, I did explain to you in two separate emails how you could upload and link the file. If you can't figure it out, email a copy to me or Brad or any of the other people in this discussion and they can do it for you. Ok?

    And you added:
    "I have now discovered I can't post it on the NavL message board either because I don't own the copyright. Not that anyone else does either because (a) it was published in 1732 by the Royal Society"

    Copyright laws vary by country. In the USA it is not possible to gain new copyright over a document from 300 years ago just by generating a scan of it. In some countries, scans can be protected by copyright. Scans and binary files, pdf's etc. of old publications are not covered by copyright in the US. If you upload your file, you will be uploading to servers located in the US. You decide.
