I have a question about ODBL - is clause 4.6 satisfied by offering an
offline copy even if the Produced Work or Derived Database is online,
and does "free of charge" prevent charging for the cost of copying?

    "The Derivative Database (under a.) or alteration file (under b.) must be
    available at no more than a reasonable production cost for physical
    distributions and free of charge if distributed over the internet."
