I do not think we should axe this section. I think waze should inform us what has changed (ideally by waze staff updating this section). Presumably copying external sources of information remains problematic. Haven't the biggest issues been with OSM maps rather than Google maps?

For all I know we may still be prohibited from copying say Google's POIs into the Waze map as doing so may still violate Google's contracts with its various information suppliers. So it may still be true that we can't copy the external Google map without causing problems.

I thought I had posted something already on this, but I cannot find it. Maybe I forgot to hit Submit. :oops:

The Waze team asked me to make changes to these pages a few weeks ago, so they are very live and well and need to be strictly enforced based on Waze agreements with the various sources (even themselves). :lol:
