It is not a surprise that you are asking that, but just consider what
the world would be like if we only had laws that could guaranteed to be
100% enforced.

The good news is that most re-users of OSM data  are good citizens and
even if they mistakenly haven't provided acceptable attribution, fix it
once they have been pointed to the issue. With smaller organisations
that typically is fast, with large bureaucratic organisations it needs
patience.
