Another lovely example from our OSMF Corporate Member.


Also feel free to check every hyperlink on that page. If you find any 
attribution, let me know. Might be the case that it's not 50% OSM... 
Even on the guide that contradicts their attribution 
<https://docs.mapbox.com/help/how-mapbox-works/attribution/> of using 

> The /text attribution/ contains at least three links: |© Mapbox| 
> <https://www.mapbox.com/about/maps/>, |© OpenStreetMap| 
> <http://www.openstreetmap.org/about/> and |Improve this map| 
> <https://www.mapbox.com/map-feedback/#/-74.5/40/10>. This attribution 
> is strictly /required/ when using the Mapbox Streets tileset due to 
> OpenStreetMap's data source ODbL 
> <http://opendatacommons.org/licenses/odbl/summary/> license.

Streets that quote "Mapbox Streetsvector tiles are largely based on data 
from OpenStreetMap (OSM), an open source resource of volunteer 
maintained geographic data. " 
https://www.mapbox.com/resources/guide-to-map-design-part-1a.pdf search 
"OpenStreetMap" and be amazed.

Seems none takes OSMF seriously any more, not even the corporate members 
and the writing of this guidance was a waste of time and effort. Let's 
stop the hypocrisy and switch license to something else, at least 
contributors won't be illuded with this "Both licenses /_are “By 
Attribution_/” and “Share Alike”. "
