If a weather service would like to use OSM data (country borders) in media (videos/images for broadcasting/tv, youtube and the own web page) is it sufficient to place a link to OSM on the own web page?

No other map suppliers are used, so OSM would be the only reference.

As always I have to point out that this site is not the right place to ask for legal advice (which you should get from your own counsel).

Please refer to

http://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/License

and

http://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/License/Community_Guidelines

for guidance from the licensor of OSM data.

Further: with the exception of self-produced tiles you will likely need to follow attribution requirements from your service provider.

If you have further questions please send them to legal-questions@osmfoundation.org
