No original material produced by me may be used for profit –

"Produced by me" includes translations – even if there is no
copyright on the original material in the original language –
and revisions of original maps.

previously published material
The Soviets renounced copyright, so any material from the former Soviet
Union, Soviet Poland etc is free to be reproduced by anyone.
Some other material on the site may be in copyright – it's a
bit hard to track down who owns these things when the author is long
dead and the publisher no longer in business. If you can show that you
do in fact have copyright to material, I will remove it immediately.
