Kopiuje z niemieckiego forum ku Waszej informacji:
Poniewaz nie wszyscy z nas sa czlonkami OSMF a w przyszlosci wszystkie prawa maja nalezec do OSMF, powinno to takze zainteresowac nie czlonków stowarzyszenia (w Polsce wiekszosc?)
Zminaie maja ulec tzw. Articles of Association, cos w rodzaju statutu stowarzyszenia.
Ponizej dwa maile od OSMF:
1.) Review of OpenStreetMap Foundation Articles of Association from 2008 : 25.03.2011 - z podaniem powodów
2.) Articles of Association Review : 25.04.2011 - status
Given that the articles of association are now being reviewed by the Strategic Working Group I thought it would be helpful to make available the legal advise we received on the matter in late 2008. We didn’t publish this at the time, choosing instead to forward it to the board privately to avoid adding yet another layer of confusion to the rather fraught licensing and trademark debates taking place at that time.

Our legal advice from back in 2008

The OSMF Strategy Working Group has been tasked with looking at the Articles of Association, which is the legal document that governs OSMF.
In order to progress this, we have decided to form a small subgroup to look at this, which meets on irc channel #osm-strategic at 17:00 UTC every Monday evening. If you have an interest in the AoA, have stated previous concerns about them, or have an interest in increased, but time bounded, participation in OSMF Working Groups, this might be the group for you to participate in.
The Articles were a model set and provide everything required for a UK Company, but we are looking to mold them to better reflect the Aims and Working of the Foundation.
The current list of issues that we are looking at is documented on the wiki at:

So please reply and let me know if you wish to participate or if you have any suggestions or comments.
