4. Trademark Registration (Simon)
Registration expansion based on the EU “OpenStreetMap” trademark is in progress. Original plans called for a registration in Japan however the JP local chapter has already registered such a mark, we will be holding back on our own registration till the situation is clarified.
USA registration is still in work and progressing slowly.
5. LWG 2014 Budget and Action Plan (Mike)
We reviewed Mike’s draft and hashed out a rough budget.
6. DMCA takedown procedure document (Mike)
Nearly there, Mike and Paul will tidy up over the draft over next week. When both agree, it will be submitted to the board for formal endorsement. After that it will be placed permanently on the osmfoundation.org site.
Mike - Low priority. Legal counsel ... under DMCA we really *must* restore data if a contributor files a counter notice? No discretion despite CTs saying that we do?
