I would start from trying to contact relevant mappers, though I am not optimistic that it would
end in discovering that the relevant data can stay.

But I can imagine various kind of mistakes ending in valid data being tagged source=Google

> Hello,
> There has recently been a discussion in OSM Discord about > source=Google tags <https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/source=Google%2C 2010-01-21>>  in Haiti. The usage seems to have documented at > wiki <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Haiti/Imagery_and_data_sources/Old#Google_Imagery>> , but seems like there isn't any explicit clauses about allowing to OSM on the linked mailinglist posts, and the Google page says "Use restricted to non-commercial use in or related to Haitian relief efforts." Also, as that was before the CC BY-SA and ODbL switch in 2012, I and other users have expressed some doubts about whether we are still having permission to use that source on OSM. I personally haven't contacted Mikel yet, or the other people involved in the discussion and approved the usage on OSM.
