I was wondering what would happen if you opened an old map file *.qct with a hex editor scrolled to the bottom of the file and changed the 'Copyright 2001' to 'Copyright 2004'.

i might try it just out of curiosity, but i think try it on a copy of a map file in case it screws up. Then if it worked and i could use old maps in v2004 i can just delete it as im sure this wouldnt be legal.

Why do you wonder when this method pasted all over usenet? Oddly enough the genuine 2004 Maps are "copyright 2003".

It is a breach of OS licence or copyright of course, but I do find that one difficult to swallow considering you have already paid for the maps.

Then again I always want the latest maps.

I find wondering about things safer than advocating things :D
