I am writing on behalf of someone I met at a LUG meeting I spoke at
who is concerned that the data imported for Belarus has a copyright
attached to it.
I sent him this link:
Below here is his response:
"Copyrights law of Belarus
list maps and databases as object of copyrights (article 7) and
doesn't exempt government works of such nature (article 8). I think
will be good idea if OpenStreetMap will require official
confirmationsin such exports since (AFAIK) public domain status of US
government is exception, not a rule."
I am not familiar with the imports/OSM work in Belarus, is anyone else?
