Lacking proper attribution
- 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 license (usually by means of a link to osm.org/copyright).
For more information see the Legal FAQ.
These local chapters offer to handle your report of a violation (follow the link for instructions): Italy · · ...·
If you want to handle the violation by yourself, follow these steps.
- 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.
- 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.
- Contact the publisher with a suitable pleasant and non-threatening email and update the record with the date you've contacted them.
- Wait for a response for a suitable period.
- If request was ignored and they use OSMF tile servers reporting at https://github.com/openstreetmap/tile-attribution is a viable recourse
- If that does not create the desired response then you can follow up with a second attempt to contact the publisher.
- 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.
- 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 to be aggressive and insulting. 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.

Without giving any reference to OSM.|
It happens especially in articles about the administrative divisions of that country, such as these:
Where towns or neighborhoods of a city, are listed that we can detect come from OSM data because they have certain words that only appear in OSM.
