Why not? As long as only the map itself is copied and not the huge 
amount of background information, you'll have to print on a good tourist 
map. Anything you add, which is not based on OSM data, is your work and 
you decide on how to license it.

Why should someone be able to make thousands of dollars with work, he 
didn't create on his own? If you want to have the full copyright on your 
work, then you'll have to pay a license for a commercial map or fetch 
all data on your own.
