This feel very iffy, I thought this had been disproven already, I
might be wrong, but that would mean that the ODBL is really totally
useless. You have obviously given this much thought so I'm interested

Map data copyright does not magically disappear just because you print
it with a free map design. When doing methodical extraction of geo
data, you are not copying the produced work, but the map data so it is
still a copy of a copyrigthed database.
