  • The term "administrative license" implies a request for use of public information, an administrative proceeding and the issuance of a license for a particular use for a given period. This is an absurd bureaucratic complexity, because: Information on the Internet is directly taken, not is requested. If public, I have the right to make use of it. Why limit my access? Our choice: CC-BY license where neccessary
  • When we think of documents and administrative licenses, we are thinking of a system of public information at the request of stakeholders. This builds: An unsustainable system . Each request would be an onerous administrative burden. Barriers to consumption. It's hard to ask for information we do not know that there is. Our choice: release the information without waiting until is demanded, while listening to the demands to release more information.

  • The EU directive allows the setting of fees for the use of public information. Again, we are in a paradigm of documents into a demand system. However, when focusing on data in a offer system, the fees are unnecessary and counterproductive. The fees are a major barrier. Reuse decreases exponentially with the price of fees. Even small amounts can be a barrier that discourages most. The data is cheap. If an Administration already offers information on its website, the cost of offering data besides is minimal. The collection costs. The recovery procedures are only sustainable with high rates. Our choice: spend a small budget, release lots of data and let them free.

  • The technological model has also to be considered. Most of you will know the useful Berners-Lee’s scale of 5 stars. We have focused our strategy on the releasing of data, not on the technological sophistication. Nevertheless, we need to keep a balance. Datasets rated in the first stars of the scale are too much difficult to reuse. We feel comfortable with a 4 stars rate, and even 3 stars may be enough for reusers. Of course, you can focus your strategy on the technological model. Doing so, you can contribute to make bigger the cloud of linked data. But the fact is that, unless you have unlimited resources, you will have to choose between many datasets or few-but- beautiful datasets. In the present time, with so few data to reuse, it is the time of focusing in the amount, with only a reasonable technological sophistication.

    10. 10. Royal Decree 1495/2011 , of 24th October 2011, whereby the Law 37/2007, of November 16, on the re-use of public sector information, is developed for the public state sector Article 8, Paragraph 1 establishes that, in the field of subjective application of this Royal Decree, the general method to make re-usable documents available will be the availability for re-use under no special conditions , so that only the general conditions will be applicable. Thus, the Royal Decree establishes as a general rule the most beneficial method to re-use, which must be followed in the majority of cases.
    11. 11. #3: Better on-offer than on-demand Royal Decree 1495/2011 (Article 2) “ The bodies of the General Administration and the other agencies or entities referred to in Article 1.2 shall authorise the re-use of the documents in their authorship or keep falling within the scope of application of this Royal Decree” “ The re-usable documents with pre-existing digital versions available shall be made available to the public , in structured, usable ways, preferably raw and in automated accessible and processable formats”
