Dear All,

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?
