Thanks for working on this, the document looks good to me. (I'm not a formal member of the Legal WG, but just a long time mapper interested in sorting out these disputes).

>Oliver, Dermot and I have give a finally look over the document and
are happy to now send it to the board as our formal proposal.
However, as Chair I would really prefer a formal quorate, 4, for
such things and ask you to indicate yes or no by email before I send
>The draft is of the last meeting + your changes + we went through
and considered and clarified what each "OpenStreetMap" meant. As an
interesting aside, it defines "OpenStreetMap" without qualification
to be the database itself rather than any human entity ... may be a
useful legal construct in the future.
>I also intend forwarding it to the Japanese community since
treatment of disputed-island naming is an issue there as it ties the
hands of the national mapping agency on how cooperative they can be
with us. If I get any substantial feedback, I will forward to board.
