The textile industry uses the Nice Code of Conduct for the Fashion and 
Textile Industry [1]. 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. 
For example:
- 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.
