Licensing Working Group

Agenda & Minutes
Present: Dermot McNally, Simon Poole, Grant Slater, Oliver Kühn, Steve Coast, Henk Hoff, Richard Weait, Michael Collinson
Minutes by: Michael
1. Adoption of Minutes of last meetings
The LWG last met April 17th for a long-form meeting.
2. MATTERS ARISING (open action items from previous meetings)
3. Finalise today's agenda
4. WSGR point of contact
Mike proposed a formal vote of thanks to Richard for taking on and diligently executing this role. Passed unanimously.
Mike to take over for now.
5. Contact and re-map
6. Technical Rebuild
Progress and issues
LWG understands that: Code still not quite complete. Andy Allan now helping Matt Amos. An estimated two full days coding to do - particularly some subtleties to do with relations. Then a non live test on a machine that is all ready to go now. Then a live test on a bounding box around the island of Ireland. Then live worldwide (probably on a change-set basis, not on a region by region basis).
Henk and Richard will coordinate as CWG members. Dermot/Matt can sanity check. No major role for LWG. LWG suggests a blog update when the non-live test starts.
7. Hall of Shame
Microsoft, Germany military site blurring
Discussion in Germany died down after a response from Microsoft. We are happy with the response provided that progress happens, we will continue passive monitoring.
- GADM - Simon reports lack of progress … however individuals sources may not be usable by OSM at all due to non-commercial clauses. Simon has sent mail to DWG.
- Post License Change Attribution proposal by Richard Fairhurst:
"Our requested attribution is "© OpenStreetMap contributors".
"You must make it clear that the data is available under the Open Database Licence. This can be achieved by providing a "License" or "Terms" link which links to www.openstreetmap.org/copyright or www.opendatacommons.org/licenses/odbl.
"(If you are using tiles from osm.org, you must also make it clear that the tiles are available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 licence.)"
LWG comment: "© OpenStreetMap" would (also) suffice? (Not that the larger version is bad, just that we'd be more assured of getting the smaller one and mobile screen space etc…). Mike to relay to Richard Fairhurst.
