Open data is a hot trend, with a lot of parallels to the early days of FOSS. This talk will introduce the major projects and trends in the space, the background law that governs the topic in the US, EU, and Asia, and the key licenses in the space. The material will be necessarily somewhat introductory in nature, given the immature state of the area.
