Go-ings on - Go game copyright

It looks like the great go game copyright debate has died down for the time being on (you may have been following it in the GA Go Chatter feed) and elsewhere. For those of you who missed it, the debate involved a raging debate over the copyright of professional go game records and collections of records. The chief player in keeping the debate alive was Frank de Groot, developer of Moyogo, who passionately defended his action of incorporating game records from numerous sources into the game database distributed with Moyogo.

One good thing seems to have arisen out of the ashes of this good old fashioned news group flame war, Frank has published a collection of over 40,000 professional go game records absolutely free of copyright restrictions on his site. May these games enrich your digital go research!
