May a person use a screenshot of a part of a map available on the site of OpernScreetMap and paste it in a presentation software program such as (Open office presentation or Microsoft Powerpoint)where different "shapes" will be added on the screenshot iself? Is it legally permitted to send such a presentation to different contacts without placing it on a website? Thank you for your answer.
