I regretfully have to relay that while the Ordnance Survey "has no 
objections to geodata derived in part from OS OpenData being released 
under the Open Database License 1.0", this has to permanently exclude 
Code-Point Open, (postcode) data. This was an open issue previously.  If 
anyone wants to take it up, they'd need to go to the head of the 
commercial licensing team at the Royal Mail.  I would like to thank the 
guys at the OS for the efforts in this matter.
