Ahh, sorry, but Microsoft defintely didn't donate the images to OSM 
(they don't even own the images in the first place), for example 
building your own server with bing tiles would and is clearly a no no.

They do allow tracing from images provided by their services, which is 
why they can be integrated in JOSM and Potlatch. From a practical point 
of view, I don't believe anybody will really complain about one-off 
printing of the images, but it's not really covered by the license.
