Hello everyone,

Amidst hard questions in the Brazilian community, I've been wondering
which copyright legislation should apply to OpenStreetMap's data (in
the case of suspicious data imports): that of where the data is stored
and provided from (seems to be from the UK right now) or that of where
the data refers to? Or both? Or some other international law?
