Cybersquatting domain names (completely unrelated to any actual OpenStreetMap-based services)

Don't assume any relation between these sites and any OSM project. It's best to avoid them completely. Please don't post and advertize here any actual working link to their sites.

Please note that some sites have a very legitimate use of "OSM" in their business name (usually local abbreviations, possibly trademarked or legally registered in some countries) and domain names, without having any relation with OpenStreetMap. OpenStreetMap is not attempting to "steal" or discredit these sites, but they have they own life and it's not up to this OpenStreetMap to advertize them, unless they come into relation with our common projects, with clear statements to distinguish their names if we ever need to include them on this wiki for our common projects.
