Content and documentation licensing

MusicBrainz has an established and clear set of licensing terms for its database content and the contents of its wiki. Of course, the linked data translation of the MusicBrainz database contents will be offered under the same Public Domain license applied to the MusicBrainz database contents. However, some content in the MusicBrainz database is licensed as by-nc-sa including annotations and folksonomy tags. JISC considers this license incompatible with completely open data. Therefore, this small subset of the MusicBrainz database will likely be omitted from our translation moving forward.

Project Plan Post 4 of 7: IPR (Creative Commons Use & Open Source Software License)

The MusicBrainz database contains two types of information. The core data, consisting of factual data such as the names of albums, tracks and artists, is in the public domain. The remaining data, such as annotations, tags, opinions and ratings are protected by the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0 licence, which allows non-commercial use of the data under the conditions that MusicBrainz is given credit and that any derivative works are also made available under the same licence. Thus the linked data published by this project will follow the same licence arrangement. In particular, this allows the outputs of the project to be used freely in teaching and research.
