Welcome to Simon Hughes

Action item: Dorothea to add Simon to the LWG mailing list and to the LWG chat channel on Signal.

openSenseMap

  • They are an LLC, launched in 2014.
  • They are getting support from the German Education ministry.
  • Simon Poole sent them a friendly email on 2019-05-18 but they did not reply.
  • The LWG received an email about them by Michael Reichert on 2022-02-16.

Dorothea has forwarded the two related emails to Tom Hummel (LWG) after request.

LWG's aim: Addition of note about no affiliation to OSMF.

Other points mentioned during discussion

  • When a project has a similar name to OpenStreetMap and uses OSM data, people tend to think that it is related to the OSM Foundation.
  • We have a co-existence agreement with OpenHistoricalMap.

Action item: Tom Hummel to contact OpenSenseMap.org

Updates

Attribution in videos

Edits to the attribution guidelines regarding attribution in videos have been made.

Reported attribution cases

Reports in OTRS

HOT trademark agreement

Update by Guillaume Rischard (board chairperson)

  • Guillaume to meet Tyler Radford (HOT) on 30 March.
  • The OSMF board agrees with LWG that we have to be clear and that requesting a trademark fee is counterproductive.

Needed: Update to Copyright FAQ page to match new attribution guidelines

  • See the suggestions by Simon Hughes on the Copyright page.
  • Separately, we should also make edits to the Copyright FAQ page and mark anything that is not matching the attribution guidelines or is confusing and circulate that to the LWG.

Action item: Simon to create a draft so that the FAQ page content matches that of the attribution guidelines.

On changes to copyright page suggested by Simon Hughes

2022-01 action item.

  • Suggestions look good.
  • The changes will be made with a pull request to the OSM website's repository.

On Copyright FAQ page translations

Pending issue: Changes in the translations of the FAQ page should be considered. Some translations are even older than the current English version.

2022-02 action items

  • Guillaume to mention 1) the changes to the copyright page to the board, in case there are any disagreements, 2) that a budget might be requested for translations.
  • Dermot to do the pull request for the changes to the copyright page.
  • The LWG to make edits to the Copyright FAQ page and mark anything that is not matching the attribution guidelines or is confusing and circulate that internally.

Agenda and trademark notice review

Kathleen can continue to do agendas if Simon’s team can take over trademark notice review.
Some old Open<X>Map projects are grandfathered by OSMF.

Action item: Simon to ask a member of his team to monitor the OSM trademark notices and set an automatic email filter for forwarding the notices.
