Yes, we contributes, draw maps, release maps for the benefit of community(and for our own self too). We all have the passion to do it, spending our own money buying GPS units, own fuel, own time contributing and drawing maps for the benefit of community(and for own self too).
When I contributed, I saw my contribution came out in the new release and I feel proud...Hey, this track/POI is contributed by me.
When I drawn map, I saw my map came out in the new release and I feel proud...Hey, this map is drawn by me.
If I am the Site Admin, I feel proud after new release when I saw people used and benefited with the map I release.
But if I copied the contributions, tracks or polygon from others forum and paste into my map, and the new map release...Do I feel proud? Or I merely said that I did it for the benefit of the community?
How about those people who contributed the track, POIs, polygon and do mapping? Yes, they might not mind as they did it for the benefit of the community. But all their hardworks became others people hardworks.
Last question, if I cracked the Garmin Map lock code, copy it and distribute it out to the community, is it acceptable? It is also for the benefit of community as we don't have to spend money buying the map....can ka?
So, think twice. beneficial for the community, yes, but we have to do it in right and ethical manner.
But I respect Bro Tokong as he stand up admitting he copied the map and seek clarification. Hopefully he will correct his mistake and continue to serve the community.....in the correct manner.
Just my 2 cents.
