Maybe because you missed the irony ?

So get rid of any license, as a license without lawyers, is of no
OSM got to the level of maturity that market players (such as BING/MS)
without ANY scruples
are getting interested. None of us is going to defend against the legal
of any such player, whatever the strength of the license.
In a few years OSM will be the one of the three major map providers
with advantages over the other 2, that we all know and appreciate.
Donate it to "the world", make it free as in free , not free as in free
What do we have to loose ?

Wait, how did the thread about NOT nitpicking over licensing issues turn
into a "donate so we can hire lawyers to nitpick" thread?
Probably because some people instead of doing something with our data
(like big location based businesses) want to protect our data. I
personally like the do now, care later mentality.
If you scare the users of our data away by hiring lawyers to nitpick
over how OSM is represented in every which way then there's really no
point in collecting all this data, is there?
