Yes and as we support the statement: ‘as open as possible, as closed as necessary’, we could even put the most liberal license as ‘default’ UPRI in metadata templates, so that researchers would have to ‘increase restriction deliberately if they have good reasons for that, which the funder will accept (for instnace patient privacy).
In that way ‘unlicensed’ and thereforwe in some circles re-useless data can be avoided?
