Shure, it is not allowed to copy and distribute a paper map because of copyright law, but this is because I would copy the whole map not just the facts.
This is not true. Even if you just copy factual information from such a map, you are still infringing copyright. There have been court cases upholding this (in the United Kingdom - Ordnance Survey vs AA; I would be surprised if it were different in other countries).
