As of 9am (UK time), today, 12 September 2012, OpenStreetMap is now licensed under the Open Database Licence.
Thank you Open Data Commons for making legal tools available for the Open Data community.

The XML-format Planet file took longer to generate than expected. It is now available in the new directory structure at http://planet.osm.org/planet/. You may experience slow downloads due to demand at this time.
Additional PBF-format files will follow as soon as they are completely generated.

Yay! Well done!
It’s been a long and painful process. Hard to believe the license has finally changed. There’ll be more transition pains and more remapping to do for some time to come, but it’s finally there.
Congratulations to all involved in this herculean task, especially those tasked with the difficult redaction process!
Kudos for the stamina to go that looong way.
When will be the first planet file released under the new licence available for download at planet.openstreetmap.org ? Minutely updates have already been stopped.
We’re all patiently waiting for the new planet file. It is taking longer to generate than expected, but still proceeding. Check every few hours, or idle in #osm on oftc for up to date information.
I’ve heard that, “A watched Planet never dumps.” 🙂
The new Planet is now available in http://planet.osm.org/planet/2012/in XML format at this writing. PBF format will follow as soon as it is generated, as well as changesets-latest.
You should expect the new planet directory layout to be in-flux for a few days.
