I’m curating a dataset which builds on multiple sources. One of the sources restricts (among other things) (re)use for academic purposes only. Another source can be reused under CC BY 4.0.
Is there any standard license which the derived dataset may be published with, and which aligns with both conditions mentioned above, i.e., Academic Use and Attribution (as defined in CC BY 4.0)?
I’m aware of the CLARIN Licensing Framework (https://www.clarin.eu/content/clarin-licensing-framework) providing end-user licenses for academic use, the so-called CLARIN ACA licenses. As far as I have been able to figure out, the least restrictive CLARIN ACA license is the CLARIN ACADEMIC END-USER LICENCE (ACA) (CLARIN-EULA-ACA-v1.0), as described in this document: https://www.kielipankki.fi/wp-content/uploads/CLARIN-EULA-ACA-2014-10.rtf. However, in addition to restricting the (re)use of the licensed material for academic purposes, the CLARIN-EULA-ACA license also has three other restrictions:
- Identification and Access conditions: ID
- Attribution conditions: BY
- Distribution conditions: NORED (= no redistribution)
and is therefore too restrictive for our use case.
If there is no suitable standard license available to cover our use case, how would you formulate a bespoke license that complies with both conditions mentioned above, i.e., Academic Use and Attribution (as defined in CC BY 4.0)?
Your advice is much appreciated.
