>But the map of the industrial site is store in the same table/database as
for osm data.

I understand that you have a proprietary map of the industrial site. If you
just "project" it on the OpenStreetMap data then you do not have to make it
public. An analogy: The Yahoo satellite data are often projected on the
OpenStreetMap data to capture map data. So far, the Yahoo satellite data
have not yet  become public...

It is a different story if you merge the industry site into OpenStreetMap
database (using OpenStreetMap nodes and IDs). Sharing a physical database
will not lead to the obligation of making it public. If you "draw" the
Industrial site within a separate instance of OpenStreetMap and license it
to anybody then you have to make the Industrial Site drawing publicly
available.

Regards,
Oliver
