Seems to me we are free to use the data in GeoNames(1) It's under
Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License(2) My only concern with the data
and this is the same for Wikimapia(3) is the imagery used in the
background. It happens to be google maps. Both maps derived their data from
google maps imagery which makes this whole thing murky. All i can find for
Wikimapia (4) - (5)
