I think if there is any case of people stealing data from osm they
will get hung from a tree by the community.
the community is the most important part of osm or of any project and
this license issue is really not very productive in that regards.
the other side effect of the license change means that some people
will be able to make more commercial maps from the data and will
benefit from the change, this minority will benefit a lot from the
change, it is questionable if it is worth the effort and stress.
