Is there a prohibition against me uploading a scanned copy of the 1829 rules to the file section?

That's what I wondered. I see there are rules uploaded for 1830, so wasn't sure here.

Actually all rules and even rule translations need the permission of the rights holder.

I have done some inofficial translations and asked for each for permission.

With some games there is the problem, that the rights holder is somehow cryptic and not readily to contact. So someone publishes the rules under the asumption that the rights holder will not care or show up.

Some other rules are published in the web anyway - and even then, one has no right to distribute the rules under ones own name. At best you can link to the web published document.

Ciao

Martin
