CC-BY is not making data available.

But data not covered by copyright is not 
becoming copyrightable by releasing
or under a license.

The same applies to copyright-like restrictions applied to databasesĀ 

For example I may draw a red circle
and publish it under CC BY-NC.

But drawing of a red circle is not copyrightable,
as it is to simple to qualify for protection
and lacks originality.

So anyone may take this image and use it for any purposes,
 including commercial purposes forbidden by CC BY-NC.

> However, current data published by TESCO under the "misleading" terms is considered as available.
Assuming that this part of data is notĀ 
eligible for 
copyright and copyright-like restrictions then
it can not be restricted by using copyright and copyright-like rules.

It would be a great idea to document summary of this.

Note that there is already "Copyright" page.

Adding it there or linking new page would be likely a good idea.
In case of doing this (what would be great), please link it 
here - some people may be able to name further
