Matt,

Thank you for the response.  www.OpenStreetMap.org is a crowd sourced map
of the world. I love it that the Pieology site is using OSM.  There are a
number of other notable sites that are using OSM such as Craig's list
http://phoenix.craigslist.org/search/fua .  We are just trying to get to
the bottom of which firm should put the correct attribution on the Pieology
site.  I provided the CL map because it has the proper attribution.

Again thank you for the response.

Regards,
Greg
