Attribution necessary at all?

Here Licence/Attribution Guidelines - OpenStreetMap Foundation I read, that Attribution is helping the openstreetmap cause. This picture shows paths that I added to OSM from GPX traces (some of the grey ones, the exact geometry.)

Being outside of Germany, these are attributed to TopPlusOpen. I posted that picture to the German Community. Response so far: If you do a web search for OpenTopoPlus [sic!] you will eventually find a web-page where it says, that this shows data from openstreetmap that is up to the quality requirements of customer (

I looked at the map in my local area. What it shows is 100% taken from openstreetmap. I do not see any QA – I just see outdated data.

PS: For them all highway=path are 2m wide, likely paved. They even are a lousy consumer!
