Hello OSMF members,

The OSMF Board has been working on an update to the OSMF's Attribution Guidelines for a little while, and in conjunction with the Licensing Working Group, and external legal counsel, have settled on a draft Guidelines. We would like to share this with you, the OSM(F) community.

Here's the current draft:

Perhaps the most prominent change compared to previous drafts is the guidance for interactive maps: We set an expectation that attribution is visible for at least some time without user interaction to fall within the safe harbour outlined by the Attribution Guidelines. This was a major point of feedback during previous rounds of consultation.

The OSMF Board will probably vote to accept this at our next board meeting which is on 14:00 UTC 2021-06-25. This meeting is open to all OSMF Members. More details on this meeting: https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Board/Minutes/2021-06

The OSMF Board wants to know what you think. 
If you would like to leave feedback, you can reply to this email, or email the board privately at board at osmfoundation.org
