 Dear 'Open-Legislation'

 I found your thread on our EU API here (dated May 6) and would be glad 
 to know which kind of terms and conditions you'd like to see present at 
 the API. The data is not ours it is taken from different official 
 sources, so we can't really license it - what we can do is to provide a 
 free an open interface for others to use it.

 In regards to itsyourparliament - the data we have there has been 
 public nearly since the opening of the site in the beginning of 2010, 
 see http://www.itsyourparliament.eu/api/

 Stefan Marsiske states that "...there is unclear licensing, and it's 
 not really open." - we are sorry for the unclear licensing, how can we 
 fix that? And what can we do to make it really open?

 Best, Niels Erik
