OPSI Report on the Re-Use of Public Sector Information
OPSI has published their 2008 Report on the Re-Use of Public Sector Information:
“The UK approach is that where there is access, there is also the opportunity to re-use. This report documents the energy and innovation that has seen many initiatives unlock information and demonstrates the pivotal efforts in the UK in 2008 to maintain a thriving information economy. Calls for the PSI regulations to be tightened reflect greater awareness that re-use matters and has tremendous implications for us all.
The focus of this report is to prepare the UK to respond to, and build upon, the recommendations that emerge from the Commission review of the Directive this autumn. By covering all the linked developments and innovations in the UK, this report is designed to contribute to those discussions. Developments this year will shape the next. Online services and discussion mean that solutions are immediate and responsive to demand. On that basis OPSI will measure its success in the UK on a journey to unlock the potential of PSI for us all. This is an exciting, innovative agenda, not without its challenges as to how to move forward.
The potential is present and OPSI will continue to lead, driving forward change and reporting on progress made in the coming year.”
