There is no "fair use" clause in UK copyright law, which is important not
just because OSM is hosted in England & Wales but also because this is
presumably a dataset in part containing materials with an E&W copyright

The comparable clause is "fair dealing" and has significantly less scope
than the US "fair use". There may be other aspects of copyright law you
could look at but I wouldn't rely on this one.
