What would be the legal basis for that?
Say I add a whole town to OSM. You then use that data with blatant
disregard for the license.
If I want to sue you, then you must have violated a right of mine, or
broken a contract with me.
Given that we are in the process of throwing away a license that is
rooted in copyright because we say that copyright doesn't apply - which
of my rights would you have violated, or which contract broken?
