Paper map copyright protection

If you have any interest in maps, you will have heard that map-makers introduce little 'mistakes' in their maps. These mistakes are a deliberate measure to prevent their competitors from simply copying their maps without doing the surveying themselves: if your competitor's map contains the 'trap' you set, you know they've lifted the information from your map.

But sometimes, it goes wrong. Like in the case of Agloe, which was intended to be a trap town in the middle of no-where, until someone used that name for their store in that location!
