Also, if you are communicating to other organisations about OSM, you might want to think about creating a local chapter. Contacting the OSMF local chapters group you could at least ask  them if you should or for other advice.<div>

My last question would be : if we want to use the word "openstreetmap" in our domain name, do we need to be supported by some people, organization or we can process with this : <a href="http://openstreetmap.qc.ca" target="_blank">openstreetmap.qc.ca</a> domain without any problem ?</blockquote>

</div></div><div><br></div>I would go ahead with that domain name, other people make similar named websites. I don't actually know about the name "OpenStreetMap" but I know the logo is trademarked by the OpenStreetMap Foundation(OSMF). This was done mainly so that people can't use it in a negative way, I fairly sure you're allowed to use it as you're supporting OSM and linking back to them a lot.<div>

<br></div><div>You could contact the foundation to check things like this. They are a friendly bunch from the OSM community, elected by other members. I suspect at least a couple of the board members know some French too (sorry, I don't!).</div>
