[Talk-us] OSM attribution on website store locator pages

Interesting, a bit troubling, to see an increasing number of layers — abstraction — between the end user and the OSM data. Now it’s three — the web site itself, Mobify (never heard of them), Mapbox —  between the end user and OSM. Makes it easier for all the intermediaries to point to the others for attribution requirements. And harder for the OSM community to enforce this simple but important requirement. OSM can only benefit from having many eyes on the map if we can continue to close this feedback loop. 

To my mind it’s on Mapbox to enforce attribution, I assume having this present on the map is in the terms they present to their customers?
