My rule of thumb is that getting facts from an individual website for a cafe
or shop or church is fine, but do not copy from online directories or the
databases maintained by search engines.  If adding details from a website I will
usually note it in the 'source' or 'uri' tags, or in the changeset comment, to
provide some evidence that I found it independently and didn't just copy off
