<div>See now this is where BY-SA is screwed up for me. </div>
<div>Take for example a non-profit organisation (say a charity) who does research in the public interest/to promote their cause. They want to use the OSM data, for obvious reasons, and have no choice but to license Government census data. They want to put out a publication with the census data on a map. What you are saying is they cannot, so they have to also license the map data, at great additional expense, from the government instead of using that money to save lives/care for needy/provide aid to disaster areas etc.
<div>Well - There is no perfect license that I can see unless we spend lots of money on lawyers to create one. </div>
<div>What about dual licensing? Offer the choice of BY-SA (so that companies can use the data but not enclose it) or BY-NC (so that charities and the like can add other licensed data and not be stuck having to spend more money that could go to their cause)

<br><br>For personal purpose, you can always generate the map. If you want to<br>distribute it, you may only do so, if you are allowed to distribute the<br>census data from the government under CC-By-Sa. This is because you have
<br>to license your work under CC-By-Sa.<br><br>Usually this means "No, you may not distribute data derrived from both,<br>OSM and any data from other licenses."<br><br></blockquote></div></span></div>
