Imagining the Internet
Tim Berners-Lee offered his "Five-Star" plan for open data. He said public information should be awarded a star rating based on the following criteria: one star for making the information public; a second is awarded if the information is machine-readable; a third star if the data is offered in a non-proprietary format; a fourth is given if it is in Linked Data format; a fifth if it has actually been linked.

Build it and They Will Come? – Inhibiting Factors for Reuse of Open Content in Developing Countries | Hatakka | The Electronic Journal of Information Systems in Developing Countries
Findings show that many of the inhibiting factors with reuse of open content do not necessarily relate to the actual content. Educational rules and regulations, lack of infrastructure, teaching practices and traditions etc. are major obstacles that need to be overcome if the usage of open content should increase.

Government Information Licensing Framework - Home
The Government Information Licensing Framework (GILF) makes it easy for people who use public sector information (PSI) to understand the rights of use associated with PSI material.

GILF comprises a simple open content licensing framework, designed to assist in the management of government intellectual property, and encourage the use of PSI through increased availability and accessibility.

GILF encourages custodians to think more broadly about the potential users of PSI and contains guidelines for agencies preparing information for publication or distribution. In turn, it enables customers to understand how they can re-use PSI in a legally appropriate way.
