ipod_subway_maps.jpgWired reports that New York and San Francisco transit officials have sent cease and desist letters to New Yorker William Bright who runs the IPodSubwayMaps blog — the home of iPod-sized maps of nearly two dozen different transit systems around the world, from the Paris Metro to the London Underground.
Cease and desist letters posted on the blog show that even though printed maps are given away free to all who ask, and on the systems’ websites, officials don’t want them given away on the blog.
Go figure. Cease and desist letters are a bit of a joke in the blogosphere. Once you see them, and how seriously preposterous they are, it’s hard to take the writer seriously.
