hi all,

        we are in the process of trying to understand how to regulate
the input
and output data of a GPL licensed software in a copylefted way.

We understand that there is odbl which can suit our needs, but we are
not sure if it's valid for input data and output data (which will be of
various types: csv, databases, etc, etc) and the output will vary
according to our needs in different formats.

Theoretically, as we are still at the planning stage, we want to have
clear ideas on the licensing to use for our future input data and output

The code will be for sure GPL, but as I said (sorry, the repetition) we
need to individuate a correct license (ala GPL) for regulating input and

Could you kindly help us understand which (copyleft style) license to

thanks in advance

Best Regards,
Marco Milanesi and Roberta Borgognoni
