Licensing options

Several licensing options for public domain content and metadata have been developed by organisations such as Creative Commons, offering originators credit and some liability protection. However, few organisations give unconditional access to all their metadata in perpetuity and usually carefully define their free offerings. Due to their emphasis on ease of re-use, many linked data services use the highly permissive Creative Commons Zero (CC0) licensing.
