Hello all,

If you go to:
	http://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright

you might notice a slight difference. :)

OSM data downloaded after 9am today is now licensed under the Open 
Database Licence. The first ODbL-licensed planet.osm file is currently 
being generated.

These pages summarise the main changes:
http://wiki.osm.org/wiki/Legal_FAQ
http://wiki.osm.org/wiki/ODbL/License_Transition/Guidance_To_Data_Consumers

The main supporting documents on the wiki have been updated but 
translations and some of the more obscure documents will need attention.

Our recommended attribution is now "© OpenStreetMap contributors" plus a 
link to www.openstreetmap.org/copyright . That page then gives further 
details of the ODbL and other relevant information.

cheers
Richard
