The government does hold a copyright on the charts.

Also scanning the charts will not do you much good as the information related to lat and long, etc. will not be embedded.

i just bought the PAC 01 and PAC 02 so that I have the charts to get me around Vancouver Island. Each was $175. I also carry a collection paper charts.
