OSM Updates to OdbL License


 

OSM (open streetmaps) have new contributor terms.  They remain free and open.  The change improves on the current CC-BY-SA 2.0 changing it to to Open Database License (OdbL) 1.0.  Contributors are encouraged to approved and accept the change.  Simply login to http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/terms
