[Osmf-talk] Where the ODbL Ends and the Community Guidelines Begin

Well done everyone who worked on these.

I have one tiny and fairly unimportant bit of feedback: there is no such
concept of 'fair use' in the UK and many other countries, and the UK
equivalent - fair dealing - does not include a category for insubstantial
use. You could just amend the text to say "Just as US copyright law has".

Regards,
Tom
