Sure, if it is useful then I see no need to remove it.

I believe the landsat imagery is fairly low resolution. 15m to 100m...
Might still be useful, GA are going to be publishing daily updates.
On the question, I suspect it will be the same case for their other
CC-BY imagery in that they want the use of the imagery attributed but
not worried about attribution on new works derived from the imagery.
Happy to contact or forward contact details once there is a specific case.
