OpenStreetMap Isn't All That Open, Let's Change That and Drop Share-Alike 4 months ago

I don't think this is a money-making issue (necessarily.) For example, if I work somewhere (company, NGO, government, doing research, whatever) and use OSM data in a map (for example, convert it to .shp and use it as a roads layer,) that doesn't mean the rest of the stuff in the map is thus share-alike, right?

I think that's the concern -- does just using it trigger share-alike rather than including it in a database or merging it with other data to create something different.

Haha, thanks! Nice to meet you all too!
