This has been discussed frequently in the past.

It is not necessary, from a legal point of view, that we create such 
markings. (The license requires that you make it clear that the data 
comes from OpenStreetMap but if your URL is "www.openstreetmap.org" then 
that makes it clear enough.)

Personally, I do think that it might make sense to put such markings on 
the map even though they are redundant, for the purpose of instruction - 
some people might look at our web page and think "I'll simply do as they 
do, they'll know what is right".
