Hi Stef,

Thanks for getting back on this.
I am specifically looking for applications / usage of open data on existing
laws. Parltrack, pippi longstrings are looking at the legislative process,
or the way laws get made.

My question is about the bodies of laws already in place, so after they got
into force, and to see how they are being used as open data. So I am not
looking at the parliamentary / legislative side, but at the judicial
(although not in the sense of verdicts/jurisprudence)
Legislation.gov.uk for instance, where you can find all laws for the UK for
instance has spent a lot of effort of turning it into linked open data. Is
anyone using that data, and if so how?

Dutch existing laws for instance are at wetten.nl and available as open
data as well. For those I know of a handful of applications and e.g. Kluwer
Navigator who use that open data in their products.

I'm looking for more examples you can think of from countries like France,
UK, Germany, Austria, Scandinavia.

thanks in advance.
