ODBL/2011 May Letter Translations
The following letter in English is being sent to all recently active contributors who have not accepted or declined the new contributor terms. Please help us by adding translations in other languages below.
Original English-language version
Thank you for being a long-time contributor to the OpenStreetMap project. We are writing to ask you to login into your account at http://openstreetmap.org/user/terms and accept a new set of contributor terms.
Why are we asking this?
We need to ask you to explicitly grant permission for us to continue using your existing contributions under upgraded license and terms.
The new OpenStreetMap data license and contributor terms is a big improvement for the OpenStreetMap project and will encourage greater use of our data. The new Attribution and Share Alike license, ODbL, is written specifically for databases and applies better and more evenly to data in all legal jurisdictions around the world.
Over 121,000 contributors have already accepted the new terms and we hope you will too.
You can read more at http://www.osmfoundation.org/wiki/License/We_Are_Changing_The_License in English and several other languages.
Best regards, Steve Coast, OpenStreetMap Foundation
