#2711 closed enhancement (wontfix)

licence text is wrong in the embed.html file

Reported by: simone@… Owned by: tom@…
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: website Version:
Keywords: license export Cc:

Description

as an example have a look at this page here: http://www.openstreetmap.org/export/embed.html?bbox=8.95997,44.39859,8.96595,44.40136&layer=mapnik&marker=44.40001,8.96283

it shows "Data by OpenStreetMap"

var attribution = 'Data by <a target="_parent" href="http://www.openstreetmap.org">OpenStreetMap</a>';

should be, IMHO:

var attribution = '(c) <a target="_parent" href="http://www.openstreetmap.org">OpenStreetMap</a> (and) contributors, CC-BY-SA';

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

If we're going to get all legal about it then it should list everybody that has contributed to that section of the map.

There is absolutely no agreement (despite what Lulu-Ann thinks) about how the CC attribution requirements should be met, mainly because meeting the strict legal requirements is basically impossible.

I'm certainly not going to spend time changing this when we're about to change the license anyway.

If you don't want to spend time on that, someone else will.
