That's great news, but is it really CC0 if it's behind an API with
Terms of Service use restrictions?  Is there a bulk download available
How does this data relate to the individual downloads made available
last year at http://pro.europeana.eu/web/guest/datasets ?  It doesn't
look like those have been updated since then, but are they now covered
by the CC0 license as well?

For those who want to short circuit the multiple levels of
clickthrough required, here are some links:

API registration form: http://pro.europeana.eu/web/guest/registration
