Indeed the ISOcat Data Category Registry is under revision by ISO TC 37.
But in its last year we did add the CC-BY license to all the data
categories, which are still available on the current read-only website
. See for example:
At the bottom of the HTML page (and in XML or other representations in a
comment) the CC-BY license is mentioned. Basically the idea is that when
you use a data category you should include its Persistent IDentifier,
i.e., http://www.isocat.org/datcat/DC-…, to refer to it.
The data categories deemed relevant for the CLARIN infrastructure  have
been imported into the new CLARIN Concept Registry , which is based on
SKOS. The registry is primarily accessed via a read-only browser, but a
procedure is put into place to add new or change existing concepts (see
). Concepts in the CCR have a handle as PID, which can be used to refer
to it like the ISOcat PIDs for data categories. Also these concepts are
released under a CC-BY license, but I think that could be stated more
clearly (I’ll look into that).
Hope this helps,
