Those following the post a few weeks ago about the announcement by the
Australian Bureau of Statistics that they were going to release their material
under a Creative Commons licence will be pleased to know that it's happened.
All content on the ABS website (other than logos and other trade marked
content) is now marked as CC BY - including all census data, economy data, fact
sheets, analysis, press releases etc.
Hopefully this will just be the start of a general move towards open access by
the Australian public sector.
