Public domain
All my contributions to OpenStreetMap are released into the public domain. This applies worldwide.
In case this is not legally possible, I grant anyone the right to use my contributions for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law.

I have all the GPS traces and waypoint data used to create everything I contribute.

Licensing Rights

Licensing rights granted to OpenStreetMap Foundation
I hereby grant non-exclusive permission to the OpenStreetMap Foundation to relicense my contributions, under any copyleft license that it chooses, provided it maintains the free and open spirit of the CC-BY-SA. This permission acknowledges that future licensing needs of the OpenStreetMap project may need adapting in unforeseen fashions to facilitate other uses, formats, and locations. It is given for as long as this banner remains.

Attribution licenses make things difficult. "This map contains data from A, B, C, D, E ... ZZX, ZZY, ZZZ."

It's trivial to do this if the attribution is only to "The OpenStreetMap Foundation". However, problems will occur when (not if) people have problems with how it is being run...
