OK - can we have a button which automatically applies a licence to the data?
Perhaps a different colour. As we discussed it is often difficult to
actually attach a licence to many data items. If the button links to a copy
of a licence that should be OK. I use a CC button which links to a licence
and I assume that is OK, so is it not just a matter of editing what is under
the button. If it's harder than that then Opendata will be too hard.
