[OSM-legal-talk] TeleAtlas data in OSM

Hi,

I tried to send this to the foundation but I got no response, so I'm trying
here.

During an edit session I noticed a number of errors near my living
area [1]. Comparing the area with GMaps [2] reveals too many
similiraties.

I have compared the OSM data with a dump of TeleAtlas DB which I use
for work and I discovered that ways and nodes are exactly the same so
I'm pretty sure that this data was uploaded from a similar dump.

The changesets are all of the user "moleilbevi" [3].

Other users have mapped the area before this "disaster" so is not easy
for me deleting only the ways copied.


Bye,

Stefano
