Licensing where charges apply
10 Licensing where charges apply
As explained earlier, Government policy is that public sector information should be licensed for use and re-use free of charge under the OGL. However, there are circumstances where charges may be made.
We recognise that it is not possible to provide model licences to suit all situations where charges are made. However, we have produced guidance to assist public sector bodies in drafting licences that involve charges, see Annex B below. This guidance takes into account the charging provisions of the PSI Regulations and INSPIRE.
Please note, however, that this guidance is not a substitute for public sector bodies seeking their own legal advice on the contents and use of licences for the re-use of their information. We recommend that legal advice is sought before offering any information for use and re-use where charges are made.
