Subject: [mySociety-community] Video licensing by parliaments - looking for
good practice worldwide

Hello mySociety community members worldwide

What are the best examples where a parliament uses open licensing for
distributing its own videos (of debates, committees, etc), and gives
explicit encouragement to re-use?

I suppose the ideal licence would be one of these:
Maybe OGL (or similar)

I've been looking at the licence used by the National Assembly for Wales
and it's a uniquely-worded affair requiring:

the material being reproduced accurately and not in a misleading context

This doesn't strike me as ideal for encouraging re-use, or for that matter
even remotely enforceable.

Diolch o flaen llaw / thanks in advance
