Those interested in open PSI will be excited to know that the Australian budget delivered last night was released under a Creative Commons Attribution licence.


Following the strong support for open access in the government's response to the Gov 2.0 report last week, this is a great show of the government putting its money where its mouth is (sorry, I couldn't resist). In fact, the last week has seen the release of three major Federal Government reports - the Budget, the Gov 2.0 response and the NBN Implementation Study - all under CC licences. This seems to be a great indicator that the government really means what it says - open access is going to be the default position for the Australian Federal Government from now on.


I’d love to see an artistic mashup of the budget document – anyone?
