Beating the snags in open data

Guardian.co.uk - The drive for public sector data transparency has accelerated with the publication of spending data and the Open Government Licence (OGL) framework, licensing the re-use of public data. Central government has set up data.gov.uk as a searchable home for data and the number of organisations using the OGL is increasing: of the 293 councils that had published spending data by the end of January 2011 deadline, 141 had released their data under the OGL.
