I'm the main guilty for all the italian mass imports, those already
done and those still to come (authorized, but yet to be imported in to
The problem I see is that I asked the various administrations for
derivation rights under CC-BY-SA licence.
Clearly I do not want to go back and ask them again for agreement
under a new licence.
Whose data are they anyway? Mine, since I uploaded them in OSM, or
theirs because otherwise I would not have had data tu build upon?
The fact that I converted them from a different coordinates Datum and
did choose which OSM tags to be applied, gives me some rights to
choose? who has to choose if I will need to dump those mass imports?
Even if this horrifies me, I think I will be ulimately forced not to
switch to the new licence in order to fulfill the authotization I was
granted by the local governments. Thus dumping all of the OSM work I
have ever done.
