12017-12-06 16:56:20 UTCGinaroZ Please explain why you have deleted this building? It is visible on DigitalGlobe and Esri imagery.
22017-12-06 17:02:41 UTCcolortitian Others complaining about additions without express permission/open data licenses, happy for you to reinstate if those are approved sources - I'm removing my additions as I appear to be causing more trouble than helping!
32017-12-06 17:21:30 UTCGinaroZ The problem with this edit is that you removed the entire building and shop data which I had added :)

I've just seen the other comments - I would say that if you are adding a website there is no licence issue.

However if you want to add building data but there is nothing visible on Bing, you c...
42017-12-06 17:23:06 UTCcolortitian Apologies and thank you.
12017-12-04 10:50:19 UTCACS1986 Hi and welcome back to OSM.

Firstly, I see you've been adding Morrisions supermarkets from their website data. We cannot use this without permission. Can you please confirm that you have explicitly been given permission to add this data to OSM?

Secondly, please use building=retail and shop=su...
22017-12-04 11:03:22 UTCTomH Adding a link to the web site doesn't raise a license issue - it would only be an issue if the web site was the source of knowledge about the store and I see nothing here to suggest that.
32017-12-04 11:06:24 UTCTomH Hmm now I see that there are whole load of others that have been changed in the same way so I guess that makes it more likely that the site is being used as the source.
42017-12-04 11:19:07 UTCcolortitian I can remove all my edits if that helps. The Morrisons' site doesn't have store map information - where I have added those they have been from the relevant planning portal - if that is a valid open source I can attribute those - otherwise I can just remove.
52017-12-06 14:07:24 UTCSK53 I doubt if planning portals are acceptable either, unless they make data available under an open licence.

There is good open data for Morrisons in the form of Food Hygiene data. So for instance this one http://ratings.food.gov.uk/business/en-GB/726630/Morrisons-Preston (& the petrol station h...
62017-12-06 14:16:45 UTCcolortitian The council planning portals are under the OGL, e.g. https://data.gov.uk/dataset/open-data-planning-applications so no 'willy-nilly' here.

72017-12-06 15:47:35 UTCSK53 Yes some are (for instance Nottingham), but majority are not, and Waverley is in Surrey. You have to find OGL sources for Preston for this.
82017-12-06 16:00:50 UTCcolortitian This particular one is just a drawn outline of the arial photograph, but I shall ensure any that require documents from planning portals are OGL.
