Bht are they the owners of the data or just relicensors of existing geodata
that's been distributed. We need to make sure that they own all the data
and that there are no third party rights involved.

I discovered today a service made by the  European Data Portal (EDP)
where you can find the list of all the most used license for open data
in Europe.
The service offers a long list where, for each entry, you can have a
short description about permissions and restrictions of each license
and also the compatibility with the others.
If you read the information about che CC-BY 4.0
you find on the list of the compatible licenses also the ODC-ODbL 1.0.

But, the License Working Group (LWG) of the OSM Foundation explained
that there are some issues between these 2 licenses

and now the suggestion is to ask the permission to import the data
distributed under cc-by 4.0.

The decision of the LWG is born after a discussion with the staff of
the Creative Commons.

The European Data Portal is an important reference for all the public
administrations of Europe. For this reason I think that it's better
start a discussione with the EDP's staff to have a common vision.

What do you think about?
