Open Government Recommendation accepted by Rudd Government

Announcement from the Gov2.0 Taskforce on their blog - their report and 12 of the 13 recommendations have been accepted.

Now for the roll out.

The Queensland Government has already made some headway with the adoption of a new IP licensing protocol : GILF

The GILF is based on the international convention of "Creative Commons" - see the Australian organisation http://creativecommons.org.au . This is an alternative to Copyright and it is simple to use but allows holders / creators of intellectual property to share their materials for others to us - which furthers the creative sharing / building process.

Check it out for your organisation!
