I'm not sure that is true. OS have confirmed that they do not claim
derived copyright from their Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA)
users (such as local authorities), but they have refused to confirm that
that applies to anyone else. Ed Parsons pressed OS, as have I, with no
firm response AFAIK.
I have also had a response from the Forestry Commission about this
matter. They seem to imply an even tighter interpretation that only PSMA
users are free from copyright issues with other PSMA derivative works.
None of this affects the OS OpenData of course.
