That is ridiculously interesting.
So they're proposing that a database like ours could be covered by the
Open Database Licence
and the contents of it could be covered by the Factual Info Licence
Legally it looks very cleverly drafted (but then, IANAL) - interested
to note that Charlotte Waelde is involved. And it seems to suit OSM
very well indeed, addressing many of the issues we've had.
Derivative/collective and database right/copyright are both very
clearly addressed, and at heart, it's still a BY-SA licence. Though
there isn't much specific on attribution, the split into the two
licences effectively answers that AFAICT.
What does anyone else think?
