Chess games belong to the world !

Quite funny (or frightening) to see this kind of discussion now on a Go forum, the excellent godiscussions.com

About ten years ago, FIDE tried to claim Copyright over non-commented chess game records. In an article entitled "Chess Games Belong To The World" (published in The Kibitzer), Tim Harding argued how this would benefit only a few companies like ChessBase. The same thing now might happen in the Go world. (I saw at somes places Go games are not allowed to be free)
