Had more time today to pinpoint a few more examples from Facebook or 
their side companies. These were mentioned one year ago in my initial 
email to them to which they stopped replying, and shared again and was 
also sent to Mapbox (the company responsable for their maps) on the 6th 
of January with others on CC  jinal at mapbox.com legal at osmfoundation.org 
legal-questions at osmfoundation.org osm at fb.com

No one replied to this email

They have been on violation for way too long. Private emails, mailing 
lists, blog entries, asking the board to  terminate the license (which 
they have 30 days to fix after receiving the notice from the licensor 
OSMF. And again, both these companies are corporate members of OSMF. 
They should be the first to give the example and communicate with the 
community, not ignore them. About my request to the board, i'm still 
waiting for a decision, four months later.
