Another small step towards open access to the law was taken yesterday in Oregon. Oregon has given up its copyright claims in the statutes making them accessible to anyone to reuse and republish.
More from Justica:
Oregon’s Legislative Counsel Committee had a meeting this morning to discuss the copyright claim on the Oregon Revised Statutes. After taking legal counsel from Dexter Johnson, talking with Karl Olson, Carl Malamud, three Oregon citizens and myself, they unanimously voted to not to enforce any copyright claims on the Oregon Revised Statutes. This great!!!
