Map Publishers in Court over Folding Method

Two map publishers — Compass Maps and GeoCenter publishing group — are in court over an origami-based method of folding maps, The Times reports in a brief article. “Compass Maps say they created the ‘star-fold’ map and developed the brand over several years. The maps have a special pattern of perforations and creases to allow them to open and close hundreds of times before tearing.” Via GIS Lounge.
