Well I suggest that you don't transcribe.
I suggest you use "copy and paste" as normal lazy people do.
You have omitted the entire context.
Last time you made these claims, we asked for the original to made
available, and we still haven't seen an original.

As we are trying to tell you, AGIMO, who owns the "data.gov.au" domain,
does not grant any copyright permissions whatsoever. They are a place
which consolidates data and makes it available, but the actual
government department or qango which owns the data has to be approached
for an alteration in any licence conditions or confirmation of licence
As you persist down this path, you will be responsible for putting in
your ODbL-licensed database material which is incompatible, as it is
CC-BY 2.5 licensed data.
