Blank cheque

so how about just change the terms to "you must donate all your proprietary data to OSM", wait for their website to download another tile, then inform your customers of their new obligations ;)

This is a sign of a lazy lawyer. Thankfully, it's unlikely that it would stand up if it was ever taken to court. Cloudmade should be ashamed.

It is standard text in most Terms. It is nothing to get over excited about. Ask Cloudmade for a clarification, file clarification and then sleep easy at night. :-)

pretty sure it's not standard text - even the worst consumer EULAs don't have blank-cheque clauses (I know - I keep copies of every one I agree to at work)
