Hoi, What other people say is there choice. The law is simple. Facts cannot be copyrighted and consequently the preference / the opinion of Denny is simply that.
Typically statistics organisations are more than happy to share their data. They do so in the Netherlands and it is only for a lack of organisation on our end that it has not happened yet. When I copy data from Wikipedia, it is unstructured in every sense. As a follow up I often spend time to improve upon it further. I do not care for your opinion. So far I only have seen your FUD, you present preferences of people like Denny as a ground for compliance, it is not and there is not much positive in what I have seen from you so far. What is your contribution, what is it that you hope to achieve? You point to organisations like statistics organisation like they are the ones not interested in collaboration. They are ever so happy to collaborate and we are happy to acknowledge them for the source of information when they do. By seeking collaboration, by seeking to bring data together and achieve more, we are able to make a difference. This is not done by publicly claiming like you do that you are not involved and do not want to know. It is done by being involved, knowing what quality means and how we can achieve it and walking the walk and talk the talk.
