Another aspect of where the ODbL hurts us: Because we are using a
restrictive license, we cannot argue against other parties that use a
restrictive license. Look at New York State's GIS
Clearinghouse. Individuals not welcome. For-profit corporations not
welcome. OpenStreetMap users .... not welcome. NY government entities?
Welcome! Non-profits? Welcome!
We can't argue against that on principle because we're just as bad.
