Open Data Commons is the home of a set of legal tools to help you provide and use Open Data

If you’re wondering about things like: why open data matters? or why do I need this legal stuff, can’t I just post my data online? we suggest you check out the FAQ. If you want to know what we mean by open data visit the Open Definition which defines open in relation to data and content.
