Here is an outrageous story.  A tiny little website called geocoder.ca is
being sued by Canada Post.  Geocoder.ca has created a crowd-sourced
database of postal codes that is distributed for free under the Open
Database License (ODbL).  Canada Post is suing to have the data taken down
and for lost revenue.****

** **

Ervin Ruci is the sole operator and owner of geocoder.ca.  Ervin has
indicated that his free postal code data is used by OSM.  For more info and
to donate to geocoder.ca’s defense please visit - http://geocoder.ca/?sued=1
Please help support open data!****

Thanks,****

Bernie.****
