As far as I understand matters:
a) OSM has an agreement with Yahoo! allowing certain uses of their
imagery, this being one of them
b) When tracing satellite photos in this way, you're probably creating a
new work, not copying the old one.
I may be wrong on either point. I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on
TV. This is not legal advice.
