Perhaps you can explain your reasoning a bit more. I read:

"The intellectual property of any Derivative Works made by the User
belongs to the User. However he shall mark such Derivative Works
as follows, whenever sharing, publishing, distributing or in any other
way making them available to others: “contains Copernicus data (year
of reception)”."

This seems to be at odds with mentioning it on the Wiki; clearly the
content of, say, planet.openstreetmap.org/planet-latest.osm.pbf is not
"marked" by something that is put on an entirely different web page?

Then again, maybe your reasoning is that in this agreement, the "User"
is the individual mapper, who creates a derivative work on his computer
and then uploads to OSM; in that case the mapper would have to "mark"
his upload (possibly in a source tag?) with "contains Copernicus data
(year of reception)" and then OSM would be in the clear?
