Dear all,

in research, open datasets are crucial for reproducing and replicating experiments.

As a researcher, I am interested in ways to easily identify open research datasets, and for me this primarily means datasets published under an open license.

Therefore, the LLOD seemed to be a place where I could be sure to find only datasets with open licenses.

But I think it might be interesting to think about the inclusion of closed datasets into the cloud (apparently some are already included) and add a visual marker as proposed by John (for the more restrictive CC licenses).

We might end up in a discussion about license classification, though (open vs restrictive vs closed etc).

Best regards
