If you put a copyright symbol on something you produce (e.g. if you
upload it to a flexible map renderer, or paste it in in Photoshop),
you're the one infringing copyright, not OSM. But it is still infringing
Interestingly the Government recognises this is all horrendous and is
looking at simplifying the law, especially for non-commercial use.
People may want to submit representations about this consultation:
