The EU is in the process of revising its copyright directive. As essentially always when such things are discussed the lobbies of the rights owners tend to have a lot of influence. This has led to a fairly draconian proposal that if passed as is, could potential require us to pre-filter user contributions made to OSM for copyright violations. Voting for signing as the OSMF the https://savecodeshare.eu/ petition, even if the subject matter is slightly different than what we are directly involved in.

Our FOSS policy is devised to guide, but not mandate, software choices for work within the OpenStreetMap Foundation Board, Working Groups, and other OSMF bodies.

  • We have to review any non open-source software and services we are using every two years.
  • There was no software inventory (FOSS/non-FOSS) up to now.
