[$] Licenses for data

Post Syndicated from jake original https://lwn.net/Articles/753648/rss

The amount of available data is growing larger these days, to the point
that some data sets are far
larger than
any one company or organization can create and maintain. So companies and
others want
to share
data in ways that are similar to how they share code. Some of those
companies are members of the Linux Foundation (LF), which is part of why that
organization got involved in the process of creating licenses for this
data. LF VP of Strategic Programs Mike Dolan came to the 2018 Legal and
Licensing Workshop (LLW) to
describe how the Community Data License
Agreement
(CDLA) came about.
