Publishing Data on the Web

Why? Re-use!

  1. Re-use existing information structures
    • schemas
    • ontologies
  2. Re-use licenses
  3. Enable re-use of ideas (vs. expression)
    • proper scope of 'derivative works' to enable data re-use
    • re-examine database copyright
  4. Policy-aware environments with transparency and accountability with respect to rules

Oh, and open standards.
