I agree, and probably most mappers agree. That is probably reason why there is little to no reaction
to widespread missing attribution.

I think to solve this problem OSMF should act.

Just notifying Mapbox and other companies responsible for violations that they have right to
file DMCA would be a good start. Hopefully it will not be blocked by conflict of interest.

I really agree that shaming would not be strong enough to be a good use of time.
