[OSM-legal-talk] OTish: Open Street Map for Free The Postcode

I was advised  on talk at openstreetmap.org to ask here.
My question relates to populating "Free The Postcode" (FTP) using data
derived from "Open Street Map" (OSM).
If I use Google/Yahoo/Live web search to find the website for some place I know:
Then use the website for that place to get their postcode:
-> SW1A 0AA
Assuming I know where that venue is, and open street map is detailed
enough for me to find it
this tells me the Lat/Lng should be 51.49957, -0.12480
Is that Okay / Fair Use for FTP?
If I've understood the replies on talk@, then because OSM is CC-BY-SA
, I cannot use it to derive data which I then put into the public
Yes/No/Anything I can do to improve that?
