Hi Solange,

QGIS has a 'Project Steering Committee' (PSC) which you can reach on
p...@qgis.org

I'm not a lawyer, but I'm not aware anywhere where we stated that maps
created with QGIS are CC-SA...

I would write a full email with maybe the images attached, and your
official request (without the XXX :-) ), and then one of the PSC members
will probably just reply with 'yep'...

Or... (as I'm not a lawyer) I totally miss something because you are
using restricted DATA or so....

Regards,

Richard Duivenvoorde
