Doh ! (Homer Simpson style) this is the __OPEN__ Bibliographic Data list
after all. So Mendeley has a different idea of OPENness than what this
working group is driving for. They have an OPEN API that does not require
authentication, only a consumer key after registration. They also do not
provide an OPEN dump of all the bib data.
If the main complaint their license ? http://dev.mendeley.com/docs/license All
data from the Mendeley API is made available under a Creative Commons
Attribution 3.0 Unported License for commercial and non-commercial
If that is the main complaint... then would changing Mendeley's license on
the data to CC0 make it approved according to your principles ?
