Can you help me understand what part of the ODbL [1] they are violating? As
far I can tell, they don't modify the data nor do they display OSM tiles or
make any of the data available. In fact Niantic makes every effort to keep
the use of OSM private. It's only through the sleuth work of their users
that we are aware its use.
