a. It's a bit of a moot point, because CC-BY-SA doesn't force you to
distribute; so if the company generates the invoice and sends it to
their customers, who don't distribute it any further, the matter
b. I tend to agree with you that a minuscule extract can't be protected.
c. Under ODL (the proposed licence) you're not really creating a
derivative database - at the very most you're creating an "integrated
experience" - so the sharealike isn't triggered. ODL doesn't really
infect things that aren't data(bases), such as an invoice.
d. To be safe I'd suggest an acknowledgement to OSM somewhere on the
invoice; again, I suspect that b. means you may not even need that,
but it's good practice anyway.
