I sent an email to BL and asked them to provide the bibliographic data
under a free license as well (i.e. to get rid of the -nc restriction).

In other news, the university libraries of Tübingen and Konstanz have
recently released their data under cc-by-nc-sa and we had a fruitful
exchange on changing the license to cc-by-sa or cc0. I am expecting
the change any time soon.
