Desktop image attribution
|Reported by:||kalxas||Owned by:|
As discussed tonight during the weekly meeting, the default desktop artwork contains OSM data. There is a "fair use" attribution to "OpenStreetMap" in the bottom center of the wallpaper.
According to the OSM copyright page, this attribution is not proper and should include "© OpenStreetMap contributors".
However, according to the OSM legal FAQ, the artwork can be considered a "Produced Work".
3c. If I make something with OSM data, do I now have to apply your license to my whole work? No. For example, if you have written a game or published an artistic map which includes OSM data, only the data is covered by the license. This is called a Produced Work. However, if you make a database which includes OSM data and any additional information (including using information to decide on OSM features NOT to include in your database), then this would be classed as a "derivative database" and should be made available under the Open Database License as in 3b above.
There is a more proper attribution now added in the welcome screen:
