open data commons

There is a lot of hidden data out there -- data used for and created through research -- and a lot of confusion as to what rights it carries and how it can be used. Talis has announced a partnership with Creative Commons to launch a new type of personal data licensing: a Science Commons protocol and the Open Data Commons Public Domain Dedication and License. Notes on the project are available at the panlibus and Nodalities blogs.
