Here's another example by Uber. They attribute the tiles visibly, not 
OSM... how can we measure if it's 50% OSM? we can't 
https://movement.uber.com/cities?lang=en-US test in multiple cities 
around the world and compare side by side with OSM. clearly more than 
50%. Not to mention they mix all the attribution no matter which city 
you are viewing.
