A couple of years ago I started a geodata licensing guide page
on the OSGeo wiki, inspired by Jonny's work on the above guide.


It was intended for public agency use primarily, set out in a
bullet-pointy, pro-and-con sort of way.
As you can see it's still sketchy, it would be good to incorporate
some of your context. I'm not really pursuing it at the moment,
and the climate has changed somewhat (with PDDL, cc0)
since it was begun. I wonder if the approach makes sense to you.
