In OSM, 37°14'30.6"N 131°51'55.1"E is labeled as Korean territory(Dokdo). However, under international law, 37°14'30.6"N 131°51'55.1"E is Japanese territory(Takeshima). OSM should redisplay the map notation as Takeshima, the territory of Japan.

There is a page about disputed territories on the wiki here and an official policy from the OSMF here

Where a dispute exists OpenStreetMap generally records who controls a place rather than than imposing views on who "should" have it.
