Does anyone know whether the UK Government are calling the new NC
license an 'open' license? It certainly isn't open as per
"Developed a non-commercial, 'open' licence for information to be
re-used free of charge provided it's not for commercial use."
This is a good case of where having a well defined set of
international principles on open government data could be valuable
. Not necessarily so that the government doesn't develop an NC
license - but mainly so that they don't call this an 'open' license!
