I think this is a fairly clear case for the Horizontal Layers guideline and Simon also made a statement in that direction. Of course as always this is a matter of interpretation. I would also suggest to keep in mind that in principle this is exactly the kind of case share-alike was created for - the OSM database is missing some hotels and some other database contains them and the intention is that you need to make available that other data or the merger of the two data sets for inclusion in OSM if you want to use them in combination. If your use of the booking.com data is not about hotels missing from OSM but only about the additional info booking.com provides (link to booking page and other metadata for example) the new collective database guideline gives you another option: you can match this metadata with the OSM POIs and use them together without share-alike. You however must not show any hotels that are not in OSM then or make their coordinates available under compatible license. -- Christoph Hormann http://www.imagico.de/ _______________________________________________ legal-talk mailing list email@example.com https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/legal-talk
