I thought the consensus was that taking a bit of text from the website of a business that the place represents to put in the description was ok. It should fall under "Fair Use" provisions of the copyright act (at least in the USA), and besides, what business owner is going to complain, let alone file a lawsuit, because someone used their own blurb to describe them?


Yes, there should be nothing wrong with this. It's not like we are taking their description and using it to describe Waze, it's being used for the place that it was intended.

I don't believe Descriptions are copyrighted as they are short phrases or slogans,
but I am now a lawyer so I cant say for sure.
I just read https://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ01.pdf
and other articles on copyright.gov such as https://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/faq-protect.html

But what I think you are talking about is Trademark infringement

Hide or show ones with place descriptions? I see many where the text is copied off a website, which is a copyright issue.

Setting the filter to hide URs with "more than 1 comments" would only cause a UR to be hidden after you commented on it if the UR already had one other comment. If you're simply commenting on untouched URs, then you'd need to set the filter to "more than 0 comments" to hide them as soon as you've added your own comment.


Wow I'm an idiot

That's still on the to-do list - this release was just to reintroduce the functionality that got lost last year.

Ok, cool. Thanks. :)
