Also, I would like to point out that even if they claim that it is all
PD facts, the work that I have done in germany is protected under the
Directive 96/9/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11
March 1996 on the legal protection of databases. So that means they
cannot just lift it under some "fact" aspect.

I would agree there. they need to start the terms under which they
license it. And the cc requires :
Each time You distribute or publicly digitally perform the Work or a
Collective Work, the Licensor offers to the recipient a license to the
Work on the same terms and conditions as the license granted to You
under this License.
Each time You distribute or publicly digitally perform a Derivative
Work, Licensor offers to the recipient a license to the original Work
on the same terms and conditions as the license granted to You under
I dont see these as being done.
