Suddenly, MFM become very famous and popular. 1st, someone claimed MFM copied his rotten eggs embeded and copy righted maps, it affected his business of selling maps; and now, some brave guys openly carried out a daylight robbery, simply copied the maps from MFM and claim ownership.

其实我真的很想知道你开这贴子的用意以及当初开办mfm论坛的意愿!

谁copy 谁真的那么重要吗?


我从去年年底开始接触gps,进而学习做tracklog和用mapedit!
说真,有了gps真的很方便,无论去到那都可以很有效的为我服务!确实很方便!记得当时用的地图是msm v230...
人说路遥知马力,确实用久了发现地图上有很多错误的地方,而这时mfm的地图也出来了,这可真的是让人喜出望外啊!!
用着用着但错误都一样啊?幸好更新快!!这都让人欣慰的!!

得知masmap要把之前的地图重作,把地图里错误的地方改进,
又承蒙msm里的大大看得起同时也因为有着共同的理念.我就这样成了masmap的mapper!

我并不晓得msm和mfm为何拆伙,但我想大家的意愿都是希望把马来西亚的地图搞好,让所有使用的人都受益,得到方便!!
这也是我加入masmap成为mapper的主要动力和原因!我也相信所有提供tracklog的网友也是一样!!
这时的mfm地图也越做越美丽,但地图上的仍然存在着msm v230的错误,借着重制地图的方便,何不把好的都集中在一起?
但为了避免“版权”的争议,同时也尊重原作者,在编制时就保留了原作者所留下的讯息(就是你我所看到的)!

如果你真的是有心人,在发现这label的同时我想你应该同时也发现两者地图的不同点吧!!
把眼光放远些,朋友!!

当然如果你或所有原作者不愿意的话!!我很乐意的再为你们而做改变!!


Cheers.

Let me answer in English. Hopefully you understand clearly what I am trying to say.

1. If you respect intellectual rights and respect our mappers and contributors, you ask permission before copying their work. If their answer is no, it is not right to copy even if you feel you are doing it for a good reason.

2. Who copy who is important because it is an argument of who owns the original data and have the right to sell/licence it. Why do we disallow MSM to continue using our data when we leave? If we are not doubtful of their motives we would have let them continue. No need for you to spend time and effort copying. Now that you have conveniently copy it back for them, they can claim it is theirs. I don't know how much of their future plan is reveal to you. If they only tell you to wait for their announcement, you think carefully "看得起" again.

3. When you fix whatever error in Masmap, how does that benefit the original authors and users of MFM map? Your last feedback at MFM was last year.

4. What is the use of changing the labels? You spent effort on unnecessary things. Google Earth is available if you want to start drawing your own map. Our tracks and POIs from the feedback section is also available.


Bro, the differences between MSM and MFM mappers is too deep for you to understand at this moment. Attend a GG if you want to be clear about it. If you copy like that, you will create more misunderstanding. I sincerely hope that you can remove whatever that had been copied. TQ very much. :prayer: :prayer:
