ES/EU: Campaign for a single EU Open Data Licence launched in Spain
2 - Summary:
Coinciding with the review process of the European Directive on the Reuse of Public Sector Information, the Spanish Open Data Community has recently launched a campaign for a common European Open Data License in the European Union, open for support to all EU citizens.
3 - Description:
The campaign will last up to the end of February and will take the form of a petition that will finally be sent to the Vice President of the European Commission responsible for the Digital Agenda for Europe, Mrs Neelie Kroes.
The aim of the campaign is to include such a single license of reuse for all public information in the European Union in the new Directive, in order to clearly establish the conditions for reuse under the principle of reuse without conditions. The license would be required to be published in all public websites. The campaign tries to extend to the EU the case of the new Spanish regulation on Reuse of Public Sector Information for the State's public sector, the Royal Decree 1495/2011, which includes a standard legal notice that will be present in all national public web sites before the end of 2012.
Support to the petition can be offered at http://www.change.org/es/ (English and Spanish version).
