This looks really excellent Jonathan. My one question is as to whether 
give we are being so general (e.g. open license as opposed to open 
content license) whether we want to be more explicit the fact that this 
is also dealing with other material such as data (i know we've got a 
link at the bottom to the guide to open data licensing ...).

Seeing this I also wonder whether we should try integrating the Open 
Data stuff. If we were to add a section on copyright we'd then have a 
nice structure with the general intro you've already written followed by 
(perhaps on subpages) sections dealing specifically with e.g. content, 
data, copyright, database rights etc.
