MapSpot, contributor or leech?

Posted by Guttorm Flatabø on 14 April 2011 in English (English)

MapSpot claims they wanted to make an open map for Georgia, and now they've gotten their database into Google Map Maker. Their map seems to be inferior to OSM, it also looks like they might have used OSM (at least they've used Wlaking papers), so what is it?

Why haven't they just contributed to OSM, or have they?

As far as I know, JumpStart maps are considered as public domain. Their import is rather a technical matter because there is a need to eliminate duplicate data.
