There are no restrictions of any kind. Of course, an acknowledgment
would be appreciated if this database is used for anything else, but
it's not required. I'm hoping that as people find various uses for
the database, we'll get corrections and improvements like the one below.

Good catch! Total Hockey (2nd) lists Bend's birthdate as 12/20/1922,
instead of 1927, giving him a much more credible age for his 1942
appearances. This will be fixed in the next release.
