It would be good to get a view from legal-talk.

I mailed cartodb.com last week, but aside from an acknowledgement email 
nothing has been modified.

I'd like to raise an issue about OSM attribution.

It's good to see a link to https://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright from

However, "Data by OpenStreetMap, under CC BY SA." seems incorrect.

https://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright -- states:
      "OpenStreetMap® is open data, licensed under the Open Data Commons
Open Database License (ODbL) by the OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF).".

Also, https://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright states:
      "We require that you use the credit “© OpenStreetMap contributors”."
     "You must also make it clear that the data is available under the
Open Database Licence,"
     "For a browsable electronic map, the credit should appear in the
corner of the map."

https://cartodb.com/attributions does not include any of these statements.

It would be great if you could modify your attribution details to match
https://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright requirements.

Many thanks,
