[Help-glpk] Fwd: Permission to use Daniel Pickett shapefile (stands.shp)

Hi Andrew,

I emailed the Pete Bettiger regarding the use of the data for my
reading and writing dbf files from regular dbf and shapefile example
for the GPLK project. As I understand we will not be violating any
copyright since the Daniel Pickett materials has been used for
instructions and teaching materials for forest management and natural
resource management courses and lectures.

See Pete reply to this matter below. He agreed that we can use this data.

I will be sending you the example as soon as possible.

Thanks, Noli

Dear Noli,

Although I am not the person who can provide
permission along these lines (Larry Davis or Norm
Johnson would be the most appropriate), it
doesn't sound as if you would be violating any
copyright if the work does not lead to use of the
data for financial profit of any kind on your part.

Best regards,

Hi Pete,

I would like to use some data from Daniel Pickett data found in your
website for GNU project.

I am just checking to make sure that FOSS project doesn't violate any
copyrighted materials. I understand that the data found in your
website can be use for educational purposes and promoting the
advancement of forest management and GIS. The author of the GNU GLPK
wants me to check with you.

I am contributing an example for reading and writing dbf file for
GLPK/MathProg Project.

You can view the example in this message,

Thanks in advance.

Regards, Noli
