Currently the OpenStreetMap DATA is licensed und CC-BY-SA. You can find
all relevant information regarding the implications of this license
In short: Commercial use is allowed, altered data must be provided under
the same license.
In case we switch to ODbL in the future this license with all it's
For the SOFTWARE you are using you have to check the license text of
every software you plan to use or modify. The license should be included
with the software. very often in a file called LICENSE or README.
