Open data (eng. open data) — concept, reflecting the idea that certain data should be freely available for computer-readable use and further republication without copyright restrictions, patents or other mechanisms of control. To clear the data from copyright restrictions, you can use the free license such as Creative Commons licenses. If a dataset is not in the public domain or is not bound by the license gives the right to free re-use, such a dataset is not considered open, even if it is posted in machine-readable form on the Internet.
