Not considered is the possibility that the people working as
contractors for Telstra (as I recall they were/are not employees)
retained any copyright over what they collected. 
Certainly the compilation of the facts/data is not subject to
copyright, "sweat of the brow" does not bring copyright, but no light
is shed on the intelligent effort involved in "how do I tag this
object?" including when new tags are proposed and used.
