The twitterverse has been talking of nothing else.
Personally, I will be very cautiously optimistic.
The best case scenario is one suggested by Bob Barr:
- OSGB changes it's business model from pay-to-use to transaction based
(a la Land Registry).
- The £80 million (2 years at £40 million) is used to cushion revenue &
- Master Map is then released under OGL going on
Perhaps more likely is a special free service agreement for restricted
classes of businesses (SMEs) along the lines of PSMA (I blagged this point
from someone else).
Even if MM is all under OGL I suspect OSGB would not acquiesce to the
current form of attribution on OSM.
Owen Boswarva's asks if this would

of OSM mapping in UK. A provocative thought.
