Hi Menzo,

thank you for the update, I fixed the license information. ISOcat also  
provides an RDF view, which is, however, incomplete. To keep it in the  
LLOD cloud, I bootstrapped owl:sameAs/rdfs:isDescribedBy links from the  
dcif:source arguments in http://www.isocat.org/rest/dc/*.cat. I dumped the  
file at its datahub entry.
