[ckan-discuss] lock icon

I fear that the new lock icon that appears on search result lists or tag
pages together with "Data Not Open" can mislead many users. If I were new to
the world of datasets, I would quite possibly interpret the lock and text as
"no data can be downloaded here". Which of course would very often be wrong.

Example: http://ckan.net/tag/no-deref-vocab

What do you think? Perhaps the openness according to the Open Definition
doesn't have to be marked on the search results list?

Best regards
