appearance of the copyrighted work makes a derivative.
but this is difficult as the derivative maps would need SA licensing,
but any derivative data might be exempt until rendered. which is an

i think an SA license would encourage companies to get involved in OSM
and improve it, as some do with the Linux kernel, rather than just
rip it off.
maybe we need to think of the map equivalent of the LGPL, where
linking (i.e: using as a base layer, perhaps) is allowed, but all
other modifications (correcting positions, adding features, etc...)
