Lacking proper attribution

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
For Applications doing mass downloads, see Tile usage policy.

This page lists examples of usage of OpenStreetMap data without proper attribution as required by the OpenStreetMap License. This page relies on people noticing and reporting violations.

The problem is normally one of a simple oversight, the publisher does not understand what is required, or attribution is not given correctly. There is also the possibility of wilful misrepresentation. In many instances the violation is of minor significance to the project but it is reasonable for the community to expect all users of the data to respect the requirements. There may also be major violations where the publisher may not respond to an approach by the community and the Foundation may need to contact the author.

We require that OpenStreetMap is credited, and that the users are made aware of our licence (usually by means of a link to osm.org/copyright).

For more information see the Legal FAQ.

Process

These local chapters offer to handle your report of a violation (follow the link for instructions): Font Awesome 5 brands github.svg France · Italy · Font Awesome 5 brands github.svg Spain · ...

If you want to handle the violation by yourself, follow these steps.

  1. First, check if the usage of OSM data is substantial. See the Substantial Guideline for details about the definition of "substantial" used by the OSM Foundation. If the usage of OSM is substantial, continue with the next steps. If you are not sure, ask other people on a suitable mailing list (e.g. talk-de for Germany), on IRC or at the forum.
  2. Add an entry to the bottom of the table below. If you are unsure about the violation, discuss it on one of our common communication channels (see above). If you are sure, you can report it at forum or a mailing list, too.
    In case that the URL is listed at Wikimedia Meta-Wiki's spam blacklist, you will not be able to insert it here. Please contact a wiki administrator, they are immune against the spam blacklist and they can also add an entry to this wiki's spam whitelist.
  3. Contact the publisher with a suitable pleasant and non-threatening email and update the record with the date you've contacted them.
  4. Wait for a response for a suitable period. If that does not create the desired response then you should follow up with a second attempt to contact the publisher.
  5. If that does not work and the violation is considered serious then report it, if not done yet, at forum or a suitable mailing list, otherwise the Foundation should be contacted, maybe legal(at)osmfoundation.org.
  6. Once the attribution has been fixed or the page is no longer accessible, please move the entry to the List of usages where attribution has been fixed or case is obsoleted

To discuss a certain use before adding it to the list, consider doing so at forum, a suitable mailing list talk or a suitable national mailing list (e.g. talk-de for Germany). It is not suggested discussing cases at the discussion page because very few people read there.

If OpenStreetMap is being used through a third-party service, that service may also provide a way to report attribution issues. For example, issues involving Mapbox customers can be reported by filling out this form.

Hints to mappers

Be gentle! We are a project for providing free maps and not to argue with somebody about legal issues. It doesn't help anybody playing the police and collecting as much cases as possible. This could give OSM a bad image. Don't be too correct. If they give it their best then it is ok.

Before taking any steps, take a moment to consider whether attribution is worth the potential cost to OSM in the form of lost goodwill, bad PR or people switching to more relaxed map providers. For low-visibility, one-off publications (birthday invites, powerpoint slides presented to a small audience, random social media posts, ...), this may not be the case.

Probably "General Solutions" is responsible for the attribution and for the server "maps.viaclaudia.org", not by the "Via Claudia" associations. Tiles are provided from "mapservices.eu" owned by "General Solutions, so the license CC-BY-SA or ODBL is unclear.

Below the map there is a line "Quelle: OpenStreetMap" (Quelle=source) which is a link to www.openstreetmap.org. No information about license.

Shows the street class from OSM data in text form by citing the German description of the tag highway=residential from the OSM wiki without any attribution.

From the displayed location of the street "Schmalestraße" I can see that the OSM data cannot be newer than 2011-07-19, so CC-BY-SA applies. The text saying that the probably wrongly spelled street "Schmalestraße" is near the probably correctly spelled street "Schmale Straße" seems to indicate that they combined a street list generated from OSM data with some other data source.

Both maps use unsourced transport data rather than OSM's - why don't they just maintain OSM data and use it?

Leaflet widget displaying tiles from tiles.openstreetmap.org on https://www.rijnijssel.nl/ and https://www.rijnijssel.nl/locaties/ without attribution. Contacted with standard attribution email + information about the tile usage policy.

They use the standard OSM tiles (I didn't check which repository they take them from) resulting in a standard Carto OSM map with the Google logo on top of it. There's a well hidden small faint information icon (circled i), and you're good if you spot it.

https://www.printmijnstad.nl/ no yes JeroenHoek (talk) 2022-01-23 Attribution on front page fixed in Februari 2022. Attribution on the website self is now correct after contact with the site. The poster prints that you can generate and buy still seem to lack any attribution, despite being literal OpenStreetMap renderings at a city scale. Question regarding this posed to legal (at) openstreetmap.org pending.
https://printmycity.com no no Launched by the owners of printmijnstad.nl above, but targets global market instead of only the Netherlands and Belgium. Oddly enough, lacks any mention of OpenStreetMap at all (where the above has a tiny mention on in its footer). The poster prints that you can generate and buy lack any attribution, despite being literal OpenStreetMap renderings at a city scale.

Shouldn't be necessary to contact separately unless ownership of this international version has changed. It's registered contact address differs though.
