  Start with mine, and another county in another state where I frequently 
travel to - $$$$ for a GIS DVD with a strict non-reproduction license. 
I've already asked, and they mean this to exclude an OSM type of use.

   The value of TIGER in this case would be that you can restrict the 
suggested import set to just the changes from the original TIGER, for cases 
where the entire region was not changed in TIGER.
