> Open Data Commons are delighted to announce the release of v1.0 of the
> Open Database License (ODbL):
> The Open Database License (ODbL) is an open license for data and
> databases which gives users freedom to use, reuse and redistribute
> subject only to the requirement of attribution and share-alike.
> This license, the first of its kind, is a major step forward for open

> and databases and none which provide for share-alike (existing
> share-alike licenses such as the GPL, GFDL and CC By-SA are all
> unsuitable for data).
> The development of the ODbL, has been a major effort extending over
> more than one and half years with an intensive consultation and review
> period for the last 6 months. We'd like to express our thanks to the
> communities and individuals who have contributed during this time.
> Have fun using it!
