Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I have made several maps using OSM data. Is it ok/legal to add my own website name's watermark on the final image (preferably at the center of the image with a relatively big font)? The "Map data copyright at OpenStreetMap contributors" is already hard-coded/embedded at the lower-right portions of the images I have created.

Yes, there's nothing in our license that keeps you from adding a watermark of your choice to a map that you have made.

Generally, legal questions should be directed to legal-questions@ osmfoundation.org but this is a simple enough case I guess ;)
