Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I'm working on mobile application which use OSM Overpass API to retrieve nearest POI. What is status of user database, which contains user private POI (e.g.saved from user location) and saved POIs from results of OpenStreeMap query - user database automatically is under ODbL licence ?. There is single database with different sources (private and OSM) - in this case POIs from OSM should be marked in any way ?

if this is single database, then yes, you must follow ODbL license and attribute as defined on OSM Copyright page and OSMF License page

See If I use your data together with someone else's data, do I have to apply your license to their data too? wiki page for more info (for example, if you separate data in two databases, you do not need to relicence user "Private" database under ODbL)
