The Open Government Licence (OGL)
The Open Government Licence (OGL) is a simple set of terms and conditions that facilitates the re-use of a wide range of public sector information free of charge.
If you wish to use or re-use any public sector information, please be sure to follow the OGL terms and conditions. Usually, you are just required to acknowledge the source of the information – but, be aware of any relevant exceptions or exemptions.
The UK Government Licensing Framework webpages provide an overview of licensing the use and re-use of public sector information (ie materials produced by central and local government or any other public body).
