Comment from the page:

  • EULA does not really work in absence of copyright. If EULA is all you rely on for data protection (as you propose with ODbL), then all the evil-corp needs to do is let someone (my cat) agree to the EULA, fetch it, and give result to them. They did not agree to anything so they are not bound by it. (My cat is. Sue her.) Fortunately no company will do it, U.S. or otherwise, because of copyright fears... some data in osm may be copyrightable under some jurisdiction after all. So we are fine and ODbL will only make it worse. -- Preceding unsigned comment added by User:Pavel. Please put this kinda thing on the talk page
