Hello all,

If you go to:

you might notice a slight difference. :)

OSM data downloaded after 9am today is now licensed under the Open 
Database Licence. The first ODbL-licensed planet.osm file is currently 
being generated.

These pages summarise the main changes:

The main supporting documents on the wiki have been updated but 
translations and some of the more obscure documents will need attention.

Our recommended attribution is now "© OpenStreetMap contributors" plus a 
link to www.openstreetmap.org/copyright . That page then gives further 
details of the ODbL and other relevant information.
