Thanks for your proposal. Actually, it was a leftover foot of the page
(even, it was in Spanish). Our intention is to open and expose all the
data of our triplestore. These data are under a CC-BY license. We have
changed the CC logo, and added the proper metadata in the repository
Of course, we should practice what we preach. Anyone must be able to
reuse the information.
