Currently the situation of GIS data in Europe is rather grim, as most of you
know, and the proposed Inspire directive does not seem imporving it
drammatically. I talked to several public administrators, and I found that
mostly they agree in letting people have and use "their" data, but they are
concerned about possible commercial exploitations. Of course they have no
idea about GPL, Commons etc.
I believe preparing a white paper on why and how gis data could be set free
would be useful. If someone more experienced than I am would agree, please
let coordinate and prepare something. I'll be glad of helping preparing and
diffusing it, especially in Italy.
All the best.
