Attribution after clicking on (i) icon in the corner of the map

Hello, is it OK to show '(C) OpenStreetMap' after clicking on (i) icon in the corner of the map?

Hi.

If you mean to only display the attribution after clicking, probably not. See Licence and Legal FAQ

Re: Attribution after clicking on (i) icon in the corner of the map

According to the currently prevailing consensus, this isn't considered sufficient. The attribution may be collapsible by the user, but needs to be initially visible without user interaction (except maybe on extremely small form factors).

Note that I can understand not wanting to clutter a beautiful map with legalese that does not directly benefit your users, but the OSM attribution is very important to many volunteer contributors as a public acknowledgement of their efforts and something that they can proudly point out to friends and family when another great app starts using OSM. So thank you for asking and making sure that you're getting it right! smile
