A quick look at the EU code tells us:
"Member States should therefore make available, as a minimum and free of

conditions, *viewing* spatial data sets."
So you can look but not necessarily use under licence. That seems to depend
on what each country decides to do. The missed a trick but this was over 10
years ago now when views were different.
