So you've copied a customer list from another company's web site,
placed that data on your own and then accidentally misrepresented what
that means.

There can't have been anything accidental about copying data from
someone else's website could there? It would seem you don't have
copyright to all the data on that map?

It's good that you've added a key to the website, but it still doesn't
read correctly. To be perfectly fair, it should say "PostgreSQL users
supported by EDB and other companies." and probably also mention where
you got the data from, and how.
