To whom it may concern,

I would be thankful if someone can point me in the right direction. We 
plan to use the OSM API for our map tool (at stepmap.de). We currently 
have a list of roughly 1,500 pre-defined maps and a zoom-feature that 
enables users to create their own map/region. The OSM maps would be a 
great addition because of the detailed city and regional data. We would 
like to enable our users to access part of the OSM material and 
therefore plan to make use of the OSM API. Of course, we will respect 
the CC license and make sure that the copyrights, etc. are upheld. The 
technical part is pretty straight forward but I was wondering if there 
are any additional legal/copyright issues.

Is there anything we need to discuss before going ahead? Any official 
guidelines that we need to consider?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards

Ole Brandenburg

Managing Director StepMap GmbH
