Thanks to everybody for helping me with clarifying the license. To answer some of the questions that came up, we would be masking water bodies at the end of our processing chain, once we had already derived rates for all of the pixels. There are also a few other masking steps that would be run around the same time (typically based on some signal to noise property), such that a customer wouldn't be able to tell if a pixel was masked out because it was a water body or if it was masked for some other reason. As such, from the previous discussion, I take it that this means that we don't have to freely distribute our product?
If we use the OSM data for water masking, we would definitely make sure to include a written notice in all of our reports clearly stating that we have used the OSM data for water masking and that the OSM data is available under the Open Database License. Sincerely, Andy
