Jon’s Radio: a great post on licensing aggregated data.
It’s a question I’ve been struggling with for mefeedia. Clearly, all the data like posts and videos is licensed under the license specified by the creators.
But there are also lists, playlists, tags and so on that we and our users create and aggregate.
During a discussion with Jon, I started thinking of it as “the people’s data” instead of “mefeedia’s data”. That helped.
And I am trying to find a very open license to license our aggregation of the people’s data out again. It’s a struggle all aggregation type services will have to deal with.
