You can't really interpret part of a license. LIDP is probably a term 
defined elsewhere. I doubt a tracing is a LIDP, on the other hand, I don't 
see permission for non-literal imagery derived products (IDPs).

I checked the HOT tasking manager and the license presented to users can 
be found at http://tasks.hotosm.org/license/1 (OSM OAuth signin required)
but the usage terms refer to the "NextView (NV) License)" and it's not 
clear if that's the same as the usage terms.

I've cc'ed hot@ because they should be able clear up these confusions.
