My first mail to the legal list, I'm mainly active on the dutch OSM list.
We develop a mobile (and web) application, called Nulaz.:
It uses OSM data for the maps on mobile, as can be seen at
We currently say in the About menu that we do that, but it was suggested
that we place a text on the actual map.
I wonder if there are any rules, or at least guidelines, on doing that?
The wiki page on attribution,
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Attribution is pretty low on
Mapmytracks puts it on the bottom of the screen (
However, we have buttons there. On large resolutions it might fit
between them, but on smaller phones it certainly won't.
We are currently thinking about putting it on the side of the screen, 90
degrees tilted, as a transparent image.
We certainly want to keep OSM 'happy', and oblige to it's license, but
we do want to have some agreement on what is allowed and what not.
