Creative Commons and Government in Australia

The use of Creative Commons licences by government in Australia is really heating up! From the Australian Bureau of Statistics releasing all census data under CC Attribution licences, to the Government 2.0 Taskforce recommending that public sector information be licensed under the CC Attribution licence as default, to the Australian Government releasing the entire 2010-11 Budget under a Creative Commons Attribution licence, more and more government agencies are using CC licences to distribute their copyright materials

This webpage tracks these developments and provides information about the use of Creative Commons licences by government agencies at all levels – local, State/Territory and Federal – in Australia.
