Welcome to the maze of open data licensing

The notion of releasing data into the wild, to be shared, modified and freely used without any consequences or obligations is a scary one.

Open data licences can support data publishers in overcoming the initial fear of opening up data - by making sure that the original database, material and work that is published under the various open data licences is released to the public in a licenced, regulated manner.
