What makes you think I'm assuming anything? To publish data on 
data.gov.au an organization has to register 
and provide the following waiver:

"On behalf of the <entity name>, I request a data publishing account on 
data.gov.au. <entity name> will be responsible for the management of 
this account and the data that is published using it. <entity name> will 
notify the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (DPMC) to any 
changes in ownership of the account and of any issues if they arise. The 
responsibility of publishing data appropriately, in accordance with 
privacy, security and other relevant considerations rests entirely with 
the data publisher and DPMC take no responsibility."

Not sure what part of that you think transfers any rights from the 
holder to DPMC.
