Hi,

I'm Benjamin Demarteau, Data Manager for the City of Liège. Following requests from the community, we would like to provide OpenStreetMap with a document allowing community members to re-use our data to enrich the OSM database.

Our datasets mostly use the CC-BY 4.0 license, we read the blog post https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2017/03/17/use-of-cc-by-data/ requesting a specific waiver for two sections of the license.

We have worked with our legal counsel and they have provided us with this draft [1] (in French) which we would like to validate before presenting it to the city council for approbation.

Can you tell us, or point us to someone who can, whether the document is valid and/or requires improvements?

Kind Regards,

Benjamin DEMARTEAU
Data Manager / Architecture
Département des Systèmes d'Information | Ville de Liège
Rue des Guillemins, 26 (3ème étage) - B-4000 Liège

Hi Benjamin,
Apologies as I don't speak French, so I had to run the draft through Google Translate. Am I correct that the data you would like to enable OSM to use is imagery? If so, then at least the machine translation appears to work for this purpose, and the disclaimer is fine as well.
Best,
Kathleen

Hi Kathleen, Hi Benjamin,

is a waiver regarding the restrictions from Sec. 2 a.5.B. of CC-BY 4.0
required?

Thanks

If we are talking about using CC-BY 4.0 imagery for tracing, then I don't think the recipients of the OSM database actually receive any of the original "Licensed Material" (the imagery), and Sec. 2 a.5.B. is inapplicable.
