it really isn't easy as that, because what is legal and what is not depends
where you are, laws are restricted to countries (besides international law,
which is only a tiny fraction of the whole). For example mapping military
installations is likely forbidden in most countries, but if you're not in
this country you can typically do it. Mapping in China (without using their
proprietary, national fuzzing algorithm) is against the law, the Chinese
law, anywhere else you can do it. With the ODbL (and CT) we are making
contracts with the people contributing and using the data (civil law), this
has nothing to do with what is generally forbidden (penal law).

Cheers,
Martin
