Congratulations to a dead born baby*.

There is no information *whatsoever* on the website on which licence you release source code under, if at all.

There is a confident reference to the Commission's "Open Innovation 2.0" which according to its own website is " "a mash-up of ideas into action to make things happen".

Good luck.


* Please note that during our start-up phase we are currently using a Google Custom Search engine for the meta search. As the project evolves, we will integrate more "open" solutions.

Subject: [Open-Legislation] openlaws.eu EU Project starting today

Dear all,

today is the official starting date for the openlaws.eu<http://openlaws.eu> project, an EU Project funded by DG Justice.

The project is about making legislation and case law more accessible for citizens, businesses, legal experts and also public bodies and legal publishers. The project is built on open data, open innovation principles and open source software.
The initial term for the project is 24 months. It was ranked #1 by DG Justice, so expectations are certainly high! Hopefully we will see the first results soon!

Have a look at the openlaws.eu<http://openlaws.eu> website for more details (www.openlaws.eu<http://www.openlaws.eu>) and follow the project on twitter (https://twitter.com/openlaws, @openlaws). Comments and ideas are highly welcome!



PS: This is not an April Fools' Day joke - law IS finally opening up!
