* The European Commission released [https://creativecommons.org/weblog/entry/43316 licensing recommendations] to support the reuse of public sector information in Europe. In addition to providing guidance on baseline license principles for public sector content and data, the guidelines suggest that Member States should adopt standardized open licenses – such as Creative Commons licenses. "Open standard licences, for example the most recent Creative Commons (CC) licences (version 4.0), could allow the re-use of PSI without the need to develop and update custom-made licences at national or sub-national level. Of these, the CC0 public domain dedication is of particular interest. As a legal tool that allows waiving copyright and database rights on PSI, it ensures full flexibility for re-users and reduces the complications associated with handling numerous licences, with possibly conflicting provisions."

Open Government Data Portal by the City of Vienna under CC BY.

Brazil

Bulgaria

Canada

  • Montreal, Québec, Gatineau, Sherbrooke and the Quebec government have adopted CC BY 4.0 International for their open data.
  • Canada has developed the Government of Canada Open Data License Agreement for their open data portal website Government of Canada Open Data Pilot Project. While not a Creative Commons license it would seem that this is heavily inspired by the Creative Commons philosophy and has many similar aspects. The license includes sections on 1.0 Definitions; 2.0 Intellectual Property Rights; 3.0 License Grant; 4.0 Acknowledgement of Source; 5.0 No Warranty and no Liability; and 6.0 Effective Date and Termination.
  • The license permits individuals or commercial interests to use, reproduce, or add value to government data provided they use the required attribution and that they do not imply any warranty to, nor make any claim of exclusive rights to the data.
  • This has similarities to the Open Government Licence for public sector information used in the United Kingdom as seen farther down this list.

Chile

Croatia

  • http://otvorenikod.nsk.hr - Centar za otvoreni kod, Nacionalna i sveučilišna knjižnica u Zagrebu / Center for Open Source, National and University Library in Zagreb, licensed under CC BY SA 3.0 Croatia.

Czech Republic

European Union

  • The European Commission released licensing recommendations to support the reuse of public sector information in Europe. In addition to providing guidance on baseline license principles for public sector content and data, the guidelines suggest that Member States should adopt standardized open licenses – such as Creative Commons licenses. "Open standard licences, for example the most recent Creative Commons (CC) licences (version 4.0), could allow the re-use of PSI without the need to develop and update custom-made licences at national or sub-national level. Of these, the CC0 public domain dedication is of particular interest. As a legal tool that allows waiving copyright and database rights on PSI, it ensures full flexibility for re-users and reduces the complications associated with handling numerous licences, with possibly conflicting provisions."

Indonesia

  • The Government of Indonesia launched "Portal Data Indonesia", one stop Indonesia open data, today, using CC-BY license as its copyright policy: http://data.id/

New Zealand

  • NZ Government Open Access and Licensing (NZGOAL) framework standardises the licensing of government copyright works for re-use using Creative Commons licences and recommends the use of ‘no-known rights’ statements for non-copyright material. It is widely recognised that re-use of this material by individuals and organisations may have significant creative and economic benefit for New Zealand. It was released for public discussion on August 27, 2009 and approved by Cabinet on July 5, 2010. The framework will enable greater access to many public sector works by encouraging State Services agencies to license material for reuse on liberal terms, and recommends Creative Commons as an important tool in this process.
  • In 2011 The Ministers of Finance and Internal Affairs adopted a statement detailing a new Declaration on Open and Transparent Government. The Declaration has been approved by Cabinet, and directs all Public Service departments, the New Zealand Police, the New Zealand Defence Force, the Parliamentary Counsel Office, and the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service; encouraged other State Services agencies; and invited State Sector agencies to commit to releasing high value public data actively for re-use, in accordance with the Declaration and Principles, and in accordance with the NZGOAL Review and Release process.

Taiwan

  • Data.Gov.TW, the Taiwan government official Open Data Portal, releases most of the dataset hosted there under the "Taiwan Open Government Data License, version 1.0", a license with an one-way CC BY 4.0 switching mechanism implemented and has been evaluated and verified as being conformant with the principles set forth in the "Open Definition". On account of that, most of the materials on the Data Portal can be used under CC BY 4.0 license. Moreover, from 2018.12.25, the Open Government Data Advisory Group Meeting of the Taiwan Executive Yuan has approved to add CC BY 4.0 and CC BY-SA 4.0 as one of the options for the licenses on the Taiwan government official Open Data Portal. That makes some dataset can be released directly and originallly under either CC BY 4.0 or CC BY-SA 4.0 in the CC License Suite.
