Use case: We are members of a multi-institutional research community developing open global databases and models of environmental impact from human activities, obviously involving large statistical datasets. We combine data from many different sources and wish to publish the openly traceable combined data with the CC‑BY‑4.0 license.
Problem: We often encounter that publicly available data, whether from scientific publications, government websites, or even from national statistical agencies, do not always come with an explicit license. This causes concerns when redistributing or creating openly traceable data products from such data sources. Some researchers appear to regard data published without a license as open, while others suggest that depending on the jurisdiction, such data cannot be assumed to be open data. This appears to be an issue that needs to be clarified and confirmed.
