Glad to hear this, I installed it and could not figure out how to make it work, now I know why :D

3.11.1 now stores the server (row, usa or il) associated with each camera added to the CWL - this allows URO+ to ignore cameras which aren't on the current server, instead of erroneously marking them as deleted. This also significantly reduces the time taken to start an editing session on a server if the CWL contains lots of cameras associated with a different server.

Also for CWL afficionados, the generic alert message which appeared whenever a watched camera was tagged as having been changed or deleted has now been replaced with something ever so slightly more informative...

Finally, nestling just below the "Undo last hide/Undo all hides" buttons on the URO+ sidebar, you'll now find the names of the area managers (if any) looking after the location under the current mouse pointer position.

Should be easy enough to add a simple "does place have description text" as a filtering option. Would you also like to see the existing placename keyword search extended to search into the description text as well?


I personally don't see a need to extend the search into the description text.

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

I AM A LAWYER BUT I AM NOT YOUR LAWYER AND THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE

Not exactly. Short blurbs of narrative text are still generally subject to copyright protection. Whether enforcement is likely is a different question, but still, without the permission of the author, it is advisable to re-write something in your own words or to give your own description.

Regarding the 'short phrases or slogans' trademark doctrine, think more "I'm lovin' it", "Oh! What a feeling!", "Have you driven a Ford lately?", "The Heartbeat of America", "Built Ford Tough", "Like a Rock", "Nothing Runs Like a Deere", etc. Non-narrative phrases, used to foster brand identity rather than to tell a story.

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.

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