    Dear
    First of all thank you for the excellent tutorials that I see when I bought the first Apple
    I’ve always wanted to ask, but I forget. Your show copying maps in documents reminds me to my question. I would like to see my shop on maps used by Apple devices. And in particular, Croatia (Europe) to put a label where there is my store, but I can not find where it sets.
    Can you help

    Thank you in advance and go ahead with good tutorials

    Dejan: Do you mean you want to suggest to Apple that they add your store to the map so others can see it there? Go to https://mapsconnect.apple.com to start that process.

    Can I get maps to use in a slide show in Photos? I would like to show people where I actually went, even drawing a route on a map.

    Is there a copyright issue with pasting an Apple map into a presentation like that? How about a Google map? Don’t you need to cite the source–wouldn’t you think, at the very least? Or do you need permission?

    Carol: Great question. Few people think about that and they should. I wouldn’t use any artwork in a public way without checking first. Google has a lot of information about the use of their maps, since Google Maps has been around for a while. See: https://www.google.com/permissions/geoguidelines.html
    But I can’t find any information about that when it comes to Apple Maps. I doubt you’d get an answer from Apple unless you work for a company that has a legal department and can contact them lawyer-to-lawyer. On the one hand, it seems the answer should be “no.” But on the other hand Apple has always allowed the use of things like iMovie backgrounds, GarageBand loops and other materials, so maybe.
    I’m not a lawyer, but I do know enough about copyright law to know that simply citing the source makes absolutely no difference. Nor does commercial vs non-commercial unless the license states that.
