TechWeb on Open Data

TechWeb today has a story on the open data movement which includes some very nice coverage of the Talis Community Licence:

The Talis Community License aims to describe a more flexible, Web-friendly set of database rights than the current legal default, just as the Creative Commons License offers an alternative to traditional copyright protection and the GPL offers an alternative to restrictive software licenses.

The article is a pretty good summary of the current open data movement, including mention of Marc Hedlund's Data Bill of Rights which is a great way to frame the issues with a powerful cultural message. I like it and I'd like to find some equally powerful frame for the UK if possible. Time to put the thinking cap on.
