Attribution/data.gov.au explicit permission
|In March 2017 the OSMF released a new policy that requires asking for explicit permission for use in OpenStreetMap from the licensors of CC BY databases and data. As a result the following permission is only valid for datasets that are owned by the Department of Finance. Datasets owned by other organisations will require getting permission directly from the dataset licensor.|
In September-October 2011, I had correspondence with data.gov.au where I explicitly pointed out we are moving to another license specifically written for open data, that it might not jive with CC-BY and that they may not be happy with the provisions for downstream attributions. I asked them if they could explicitly give us permission to continue use or if we should remove it. The conclusion was that we can continue as per an attribution statement I drafted with their input. This actively reviewed by data.gov.au to their satisfaction and they have kindly confirmed such in an email message that I am allowed to publish as copied below, (email headers at the bottom).
