At the time I am writing this comment in Feb. 2015, OPL owns the fifth edition of the United States Chess Federation (USCF) rule book. It was published in 2003. About eleven years later, the sixth edition was published in 2014. For more information about the sixth edition, see http://www.uschess.org/content/view/7752/369/
