Hi all,

on February 16 there was an OpenScience Workgroup [0] meeting of the
Open Knowledge Foundation, where we scheduled a work session for
Monday March 7th at 19:00 GMT, for about an hour, to work on
clarifying the data licensing of LODD data sets, such as those listed
on CKAN. For some data sets the license is clear, others have
non-commercial clauses (which is not considered "Open Data"), and
others do not specify the terms, or are not open at all. For example,
the below diagram a CAS node which is not open data at all:


In fact, the unclear license issue was one of the referee comments on
the LODD contribution to the thematic issue on RDF in chemistry
(coordinated by Matthias).

Please let me know if interested in joining the meeting,
