Please tell me.

Case 6: I want to sell the geographic database using OSM and other sources License requirement: If the other data is completely independent of OSM, it becomes a collective database. Therefore, it is necessary to include the licensing requirement of ODbL and to explain to users that OSM was the source.

"Include licensing requirements for ODbL" Does the meaning of inheriting the license of ODbL also the data of the collective database? Is it another meaning?

Please refer to for official information.

To you question as the ODbL 1.0 says (4.5.a):

4.5 Limits of Share Alike. The requirements of Section 4.4 do not apply in the following:

a. For the avoidance of doubt, You are not required to license Collective Databases under this License if You incorporate this Database or a Derivative Database in the collection, but this License still applies to this Database or a Derivative Database as a part of the Collective Database;

With other words the ODbL will only apply to the OSM derived part of the database and naturally yo can make that clear in any accompanying documentation.
