Hi OSM, I am a bit confused about copyright. My customer want to use an image from open streetmap. Here is what we want to do. Is this correct, can we do that? The link goes to the copyright page of osm. The Logo was placed by me via Photoshop.

I'm no lawyer, but it looks great to me. From what I understood, a mention is just enough, a link is the best.

This is what I also thought as I read the copyright information. Most of my customers in Germany want to ditch all external map tools so the best way for now is to show a picture and place a link under the picture and OpenStreetMap is exactly what I and my customers would prefer as an really good alternative. Thanks :-)
