Avoid Copyrighted Materials

To make things short, WikiPendium is a project for a free Atari systems documentation, based on the knowledge once gathered in the Atari Compendium (read about the WikiPendiumName for more details) — This book was indeed one of the most comprehensive kowledge base for Atari 16/32 bits systems... until MagiC? and many system extentions were released.

Then, the solution to royalities is to rebuild a free documentation from scratch. This is a tough goal, that may be achievable when taking advantage of nowadays Internet tools, like Wiki. Indeed, the Wiki tool is really good at helping a community to contribute online.

But one important thing is that you should not copy/paste from the Atari Compendium CDrom! You can use the same C #defines labels, but the goal is to rewrite to be different, which is not that a bad a thing since it includes many small mistakes — due to excessive copy/paste!
