2019/Res14 Allow attribution on osm.org/copyright page
|Allow the Spanish national mapping agency attribution on osm.org/copyright, with the understanding that attribution may be moved in the future.|

|The European Parliament is expected to vote on the Copyright Directive next week. Other organizations relying on open user-generated content, including our German local chapter, have already taken a stand against the directive – in particular the controversial article 13. OpenStreetMap should join them by adding a protest banner to the openstreetmap.org website. OWG will be asked to handle the necessary steps for implementing the banner.|

Action Item updates
Membership fee waiver process
|The Board currently decides on membership applications for a fee waiver due to financial need on a case-by-case basis. Many applications that reach the board have insufficient information, either about the contributions of the applicants (both mapping and non-mapping) to the project or about the applicant's financial situation.|
Communicating decisions back to Working Groups
|When the board makes a decision on a matter at a Working Group's request or that needs to go back to a WG, we have no clear responsibility for communicating that decision back to them. Recent examples include the Spanish attribution and asking the MWG to handle GlobalLogic membership cancellations. In neither case did the board officially inform the WG of the decision.|
Advisory Board - monthly update
|The Advisory Board members are separate from the OSMF board of directors - individuals are either nominated by Corporate Members of the OSMF or invited directly by the OSMF board of directors. The OSMF Board of Directors will publicly minute, in the board meeting minutes, any communication sent to, or received from, the AB members. This monthly section is reserved for this purpose. Overview. |
