Hi Simon,

The issue is not with the licence.  The current terms and conditions 
require permission to add data not owned by the contributor.

As you point out though this data is upto 8 years old and in many cases 
there is probably better or more current data available eg Tasmanian 
Estate Reserve.


Cheers
Ross
