It’s not our app, but this is an (indoor) map SDK which can be integrated into 
other native iOS and Android apps. A list (UIActionSheet on iOS) appears when 
our logo is tapped, showing multiple links (including a link to 
Having our logo visible is a legal requirement also, and it wouldn’t be 
convenient to place the list with multiple legal links not associated to OSM 
behind the OSM attribution logo or text.

If we need to show two logos it would waste space for navigation controls and 
building / floor selection UI elements.

Since the map view will be used in other apps, we cannot control what is shown 
on the splash screen. We can place it there for our own apps, and ask customers 
of our SDK to place it there. But from experience this is often forgotten, and 
I’d rather prefer a permanent solution and give credit to OSM one way or 
another on the map view.

So I dunno? Maybe? There could be ways around it if you don't want to include 
it on every map page. Does your app have a loading/spash screen? Including an 
attribution there, which is shown every time the app is started might meet the 

have you seen this page?

generally, if there is enough space for your logo, there should also be for osm 
(on pages showing maps). If there's space for just one attribution, why not use 
it to attribute osm? The user will more likely be aware who you are (as he's 
using your app) than he will be that your map data comes from osm, so 
prioritizing OSM attribution seems to make sense
