Pelagios Project Plan Part 4: IPR (Licensing for Content, Source Code and Data)

Update 8 July 2011: 

GAP now makes its place reference metadata available under a CC ZERO license:


Pelagios will make its outputs publicly available under the following open licenses:
* The ontology will be put in the public domain under a CC 1.0 BY license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/1.0/) and hosted by the Pleiades Project
* Web services, tools and code will be made available under the European Union Public Licence - EUPL v.1.1 (http://ec.europa.eu/idabc/eupl) by DME
* Perseus’ contribution to Pelagios is entirely self-funded and therefore its IPR remains its own released under CC BY-SA (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/us/); it grants the right for its contributions in Work Packages 1, 2 and 3 to be published (non-exclusively) as part of the Pelagios project output
* GAP will publish Google Books’ place reference metadata that it generates (not including Google’s source metadata) under a CC BY licence (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/1.0/)
* Arachne publishes its datasets under a CC BY-NC-ND license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/de/)
* DME will publish sample COPR RDF under a CC BY-NC-ND license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/de/) based on public domain sources of rasterized maps (e.g. the Library of Congress Collection)
* SPQR publishes its datasets under (various) Creative Commons licenses (see under http://tinyurl.com/LDClassics for some examples)
Process documentation will emphasise Open Source software packages where possible.
