So a while back Geoscience Australia stuck this notice on their website,
Unless otherwise noted, all Geoscience Australia material on this website is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Australia Licence.
Great, another source of free government data. So today when I find a use for some data held on their site I was very dissapointed to see,
“Please note: Any organisation or individual wanting to use the Gazetteer data in a similar capacity to the Online Place Name Search or any other online application, will require an Internet user licence. (See the Licence Fees and Order Form below).”
So much for the CC-BY license. The latter notice is an “otherwise noted” which says, this data is NOT CC-BY because if you want to use it for such an such purpose you need to get another license to allow you to do that.
