What OSMF requires in the current draft is for you to effectively give up
your copyright altogether. OSMF then copyrights the database as a whole,
asserts database rights on the database as a whole, and tries to get people
to enter into a contractual agreement on the database as a whole.
No, it's not copyright assignment, but it's basically the same thing. If
you agree to the contributor terms, you can't sue anyone for a license
violation, but the OSMF can.
