This may be an stupid question but it needs to be asked.
I understand why source code must be protected under the GPL
or equivalent license, but why is it considered acceptable
to release spatial data as public domain? Couldn't the same
problems arise with people making data proprietary after first
modifying it? Is there an equivalent license that can be
applied to spatial data if necessary?
