This sounds very interesting indeed. Within the Global Spatial Data Infrastructure Association we have also been working on comparing several national and transnational licensing models to find out commonalities and differences between them, and to discuss the possibilities of global harmonisation, so the input from the OGD camp and GEOSS will be very interesting.
We are currently preparing a few papers about this, I will share them with the list once I can. Some information and presentations can be found at http://www.gsdi.org/standingcomm/legal, http://inspire.jrc.ec.europa.eu/events/conferences/inspire_2011/presentations/240.pdf and http://www.spatialist.be/eng/act/pdf/20110318_VanLoenen.pdf.

This sounds very interesting and I am looking fwd to hear more about
the witepaper and its adoption.
Its basically a list of country based input on the "state of play" on
national OGD licensing. I am afraid this is not a very solid basis,
and would need for more research.
All the best
