If you look at Apple Maps, and for example zoomed into some place in Denmark, there is an i-button which brings you to an overlay which has a TomTom logo and a link „and others“ 
while in Denmark the data is from OpenStreetMap. IMHO this second rate attribution clearly goes against „reasonably calculated“ because it’s misleading.
