OpenStreetMap was created by over two hundred fifty thousand users. It is an open source mapping system. In this manner all the map data is absolutely free to use.

There might even be a possibility that all these maps will be missing all together particularly in remote areas.
However, these apprehensions are somehow addressed accordingly.
