Well, there's one way to test it, I do it and you try to sue me, under
all possible jurisdictions ;-).

And yes, unlawful of course means unlawful by the applicable laws,
that is _your_ laws. If I said "You may use the data for any purpose
that would be lawful under Czech law, under the terms of OdBL.", that
would clearly be additional restriction.

But I don't think that's what lawful means; it is lawful to map
chinese military installations from Czech republic, it is not lawful
to do that in china.
