I see on http://haiti.ushahidi.com/ a background map which, to me, is 
clearly OpenStreetMap, with terms of use that link to 

This is of nature to make lay people think that the background map is 
Google maps. (And indeed, several press articles mention this, including 
BBC News and Le Monde.fr)

In my humble opinion, it also does not abide to OpenStreetMap licence :

Hoping this is only a leftover of a crisis situation,

Best regards,
