Data Controversy: The launch of the Canadian Government's pilot open data portal caused controversy last week when open government activist David Eaves criticised the wording of the reuse license which seemingly prohibited any reuse of data which criticised the government (http://eaves.ca/2011/03/17/canada-launches-data-gc-ca-what-works-and-what-is-broken/). The clause has now been removed from the licence. Users of the GC Open Data website can search within a growing bank of general or geospatial government datasets, while usage and demand information will also be recorded before the next phase of the project: http://www.data.gc.ca/default.asp?lang=En.
