If you wish to donate to the OpenStreetMap project to keep the servers  
running, you are more than welcome to.
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Planet.osm will help you get  
the data.

Take a look at the Development page on our wiki.

It gives you all the information that you need. Our tools are open  
source, so you can use them as long as you adhere to the GPL or  
whichever other license is on the data.

There is plenty more pages on the wiki that you will find useful.
