Self Printing Old MagPi Issues?

Sun Jan 10, 2016 12:01 am

I've downloaded back-issues of MagPi online. I'd like to take them to a local print shop to be printed and bound in one large collection. I don't plan to distribute this; It's just for my own reading. Most print shops require a note saying the author allows this sort of thing. Is this legal? How can I provide proper proof to the print shop?

I don't know about issues 31 to current, because the MagPi got taken over by the Raspberry Pi foundation. You'll have to ask them.

For issues 1 to 30 and the Dec 2014 issue SE1 they have this statement:
The MagPi is a trademark of The MagPi Ltd. Raspberry Pi is a trademark of the Raspberry Pi Foundation. The MagPi magazine is collaboratively produced by an independent group of Raspberry Pi owners, and is not affiliated in any way with the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

Feel free to print any of the materials I wrote for the original MagPi Magazine.

Any requirement to use a crystal ball or mind reading will result in me ignoring your question.

Yes, point them to the license as mentioned by SoaMG.
