Hello to the list.

I have a newbie question about the ODbL that I hope it's OK to ask here.

If I produce a BY-SA work from DbCL-covered data in an ODbL-covered 
database (I assume this is allowed by DbCL 2.1) is the resulting work a 
Produced Work under the terms of the ODbL?

If so, how does clause 4.6 of the ODbL ("If You Publicly Use a 
Derivative Database or a Produced Work from a Derivative Database, You 
must also...") not clash with BY-SA 3.0 Generic 8e ("This License 
constitutes the entire agreement...") for downstream users of the 
Produced Work?

If not why not? :-)
