Well no, Mike, I don't think so.  What rights a publisher grants to
Wikipedia has nothing to do with what rights a publisher grants to
OpenStreetMap.  Wikipedia has no ownership interest in OpenStreetMap,
nor vice-versa.

Eric, please do take advantage of the imports@ and imports-us@ lists.
You'll need to clear your plan and each step with them as you
investigate, as well as talk-us at .

The verbal permission is a good start.  See if you can get it in
writing.  Others have had email with permission to publish the email,
then add it to the wiki.


Best regards and happy mapping,
