Open Data definitions

Open Data definitions
The Open Definition sets out principles to define ‘openness’ in relation to content and data and can be summed up in the statement that:
“A piece of content or data is open if anyone is free to use, reuse, and redistribute it — subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and/or share-alike.”

Open data at Linked Gov “Open data is non-personally identifiable data produced in the course of an organisation’s ordinary business, which has been released under an unrestricted licence (like the Open Government Licence).”
