Legally, it depends on the terms of the sale.  Are you allowed to freely 
redistribute the data you bought?

In any case, the full legal text of the sale contract for that data would 
help. Maybe you could write imports at osmfoundation.org with more details?

Technically, the data would need to be translated into the OSM format. I'm 
sure it can be done with a couple of scripts once we know the source format.
