Earlier this week, Glen Bredon’s widow, Anne Bredon, released his software — including the popular Merlin assembler — as public domain, including the source code. Some confusion has now arisen as to whether or not the release of Merlin is valid, as — at least when it was being sold — its copyright was held not by Glen Bredon, but by Roger Wagner Publishing. Efforts are being made to determine the true status of the Merlin software.
