We'll keep the MapOSMatic copyright, and eventually adjust it to remove the mention of ocitysmap.

I've had it clarified that MapOSMatic generates all its map tiles itself which casts a different light over this issue. I don't really care for all those copyright notices, but considering that MapOSMatic has generated all its tiles itself there's more merit for a copyright notice about it.

While MapOSMatic should certainly be mentioned, I am not sure makes sense to add "© %(year)d MapOSMatic/ocitysmap authors" to generated maps when all we really could say to have copyright on is the design and perhaps a few messages. Even the design is halfway done by the user.

It also seems redundant to include "ocitysmap", when MapOSMatic should be plenty mention.
