I mentioned during my talk on Thursday's panel that I'd recently 
proposed a Non-Profit, Non-Commercial Creative Commons-style license to 
the Ordnance Survey as a model they might like to consider 
investigating for providing free public access to their GIS data.

Rufus has posted a copy of the document on the Open GeoData page for 
people to download -- I hope this is useful in stimulating  further 

* I was helped in drafting this by the Programme in Comparative Law at 
the University of Oxford, who led the project to harmonise Creative 
Commons with UK Law:
