There might be an associated can of worms here, for example in the
Netherlands zip codes are actually copyrighted and require a license if
you want to do something with them, on the other hand you get a nice SQL
formatted db to use it. I don't know how this works in other countries
but I imagine that it is likely to be generally the same.
