[Talk-us] maps missing attribution on usnews.com

I was just reading through the recent US News & World Report college
rankings and saw my OSM handiwork in their maps locating each school, but
without any attribution. Tiles look to be served from their own domain.

Example: https://www.usnews.com/best-colleges/middlebury-college-3691

   - Map in page screen-shot
   <https://www.dropbox.com/s/b56rrxfig12919w/usnews.com%20-%20no%20attribution%20map%20in%20page.jpg?dl=0>
   - Map detail screen-shot
   <https://www.dropbox.com/s/2gtqf736w2rs5az/usnews.com%20-%20no%20attribution%20-%20map%20detail.jpg?dl=0>

Is this considered "Substantial Usage" and shall I follow the rest of the
steps noted in the wiki?

Thanks for any feedback,
Adam
