Dear Roberto,

That is one vision for the future of OpenStreetMap.  Do you know,
Roberto, that you could be  running your own OSM server, with regular
updates from the main server, and could be offering your own tiles and
services to your clients right now?  You have these capabilities
because of the freedoms granted you by the OpenStreetMap project.

Several OSM contributors have already done exactly this.  They have
their own servers and offer tiles and other services with service
level agreements for people and companies who want that level of
service. You can be a client of theirs and use their services.  You
can even offer similar services and compete with them.

Of course with OpenStreetMap you can also improve the data in ways
that are important to you.

Best regards,
