Hi everyone,

We're likely to release the new attribution only database license this weekend at OKCon:


I don't pretend to be particularly inventive on license names [1] so this time we thought we'd solicit some input.  

I think I'm leaning towards:

-- Attribution Database License - ADbL

Other options being mooted are:

-- ODC Attribution

...and moving to a CC style elements of something like ODC-BY

I've created a doodle poll at:


...and would like also to solicit other names from this list.
