In March the BGA was approached by a Taiwanese Game Manufacturer who wanted to use the text and diagrams from our “How to Play GO” booklet in a new Go set produced in volume for the North American and European market. They said “We found the 'How to play Go' on your web site is very clear and easy to understand”.
Accordingly the BGA has granted them a non-exclusive licence to use this text (with appropriate acknowledgements etc.) for a sum of £1,000.
Edwin Brady was instrumental in getting the booklet updated in 2010, but a large number of other people were involved in producing the text (noting also those involved in the previous version in 2004). We think this agreement is a testament to the quality of the work undertaken by all those involved and thank them all.
