Discussion of LWG role post-license change based on this publicly available document:
https://docs.google.com/a/osmfoundation.org/document/d/1D3KwSM_BO7KkcbVADQVVn7eFwkD-RNauMwidhhlVPsI/edit# (edit copy for LWG members)
5. Apple Maps
We need to re-open investigation via Henk into use of OSM data in the “new” iOS Map solution, it still seems very uncertain as to whether they are in compliance with our licensing terms, (most likely CC-BY-SA if they are using our older data) . More generally, we should make an LWG policy statement about vertically separated databases, are they collective and derivative?
Iceland bill - there is a pending government bill which, unverified, would force map makers to use (only?) an approved set of government data when making maps of Iceland. We need to verify exact status, actual intent and whether we should make representation. This may be time sensitive.
Next meeting: Tuesday February 5th at 19:00 GMT/UTC (one hour later than previous).
Meeting frequency: We will see how every two weeks works.
Time variation: We will experiment with holding some of our meetings at a time when Asia-based participants could join us.
