Promising extract from the Executive Summary: "79 Public Service data and content play an increasingly important role in the digital economy. The Government has embraced the vision of the Power of Information Task Force and, in respect of important data sources for innovation, such as geospatial data, agencies are significantly improving access to data and clearer licensing pathways from innovation to large scale commercial use.
80 Government commissioning represents a third of the total investment in professional UK online content. Despite existing guidance many public online commissions still prohibit the re-use of IP. This leads to wasteful warehousing of rights. NESTA will pilot a simplified IP framework for digital media bringing together PACT, the Cabinet Office, Kew Gardens and Arts Council England." The Power of Information Task Force sounds interesting - it includes Tom Steinberg from MySociety (publishers of TheyWorkForYou.com) ----- "Andrew Turvey" <andrewrtur...@googlemail.com> wrote: > From: "Andrew Turvey" <andrewrtur...@googlemail.com> > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Sent: Wednesday, 17 June, 2009 01:07:21 GMT +00:00 GMT Britain, Ireland, > Portugal > Subject: Digital Britain > > > Has anyone had a read of the Carter Report that's been in the news today.
