The Open Definition page on conformant licenses is probably going to become quite important going forward:
- Open Definition (ongoing). Conformant licenses — Open definition — Defining open in open data, open content and open knowledge. Open Definition. Oxford, United Kingdom.
Especially as new “open data” licenses appear to be on the rise. Here is one example from December 2020 from the United Kingdom:
- Western Power Distribution (no date). Western Power Distribution — open data licence. Western Power Distribution (WPD). United Kingdom.
So I suggest the conformant licenses page gets copy‑edited. For instance, the use of “reuseable” in the context of licenses, as opposed to data, should be fixed. That is confusing. Probably “appliable” and “not‑appliable” would be better in this context?
