Scanning paper charts?

So, I have a nice set of CHS paper charts covering the area I sail in. I also have a copy of OpenCPN and the means to get raster scans into it in a usable way.
Are there any legalities in me scanning the paper charts I already own to be able to use them in this way? It's something that's bugged me for a while now, and I reckon I just need to find someone with a big flatbed scanner and then I've got a useful charting tool.
