after noticing the text behind your link above: "All structured data from
the main and property namespace is available under the Creative Commons CC0
License
<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Text_of_the_Creative_Commons_Public_Domain_Dedication>;"
I agree that we should probably have them remove everything copied from OSM
(in particular the stuff copied in Hamburg, Z├╝rich and Rome by the user in
question) because it is not compatible. I know that CC0 does not guarantee
fitness, or that there aren't any third party rights contained, but reality
is that it is used as if it was bare of rights.

Is there an official OSMF statement regarding the transfer of information
from OSM to wikidata, and someone could point me to it?

Cheers
Martin
