The textile industry uses the Nice Code of Conduct for the Fashion and
Textile Industry . In this code there are principles, which are
applicable globally, such as recommendations concerning the labor of
minors, forced labor, work conditions, etc. Certainly, all the companies
involved in the OSM project currently are nice, but the market has got
its tendencies if left completely unregulated.
There could be some basic principles of in Paid Mapping Code of Conduct.
- a competitive compensation according to local standards;
- minors could work only in such a way that there is enough time for
- no forced labor (even if people work in a prison they should be paid
fairly on their private accounts);
- visiting & supervising contractors;
- proper training;
Perhaps, such self-regulation code would remove at least some fears.
