OL4OD: Open Licenses for Open Data


A licence is a one-sided permission to use someone's else property, a legal tool transmitting the right to do something or to use a good that otherwise would not be possibile to use. There are closed and open licences. The latter (the most common are CC, GFDL, GPL, BSD) are not always suitable to be applied to data, as they are meant for other kinds of information, such as contents and software, and so on. The paper, focused on open licenses specific to data, starts referring to Panton Principles for open data in science. COnsiderations on intellectual property an open licences are interesting and relevant, within the framework of informative structures of databases and nano publications.
