[OSM-talk] Copyright and official documents on the web

Hello everyone,

Have found evidence that a path I mapped yesterday has cycle rights:

http://www.planning-inspectorate.gov.uk/southdowns/documents/MicrosoftWord1147-13-1.pdf

(see section 6.7.1)

Presumably I could tag this as highway=cycleway without there being a 
copyright issue? I would hope so, as this is not copied from a map - I have 
merely researched an official document to get the rights on the path. 

It's not tagged as cycleway yet, just as footway, but if people think it's OK 
I'll change to cycleway.

Thanks,
Nick
