Europeana's new Open Data White Paper

Open data can stimulate the digital economy and provide social and economic benefits - Europeana's new White Paper focuses on open data business models.

Europeana has published a White Paper on open metadata.  The Problem of the Yellow Milkmaid: a business model perspective on Open Metadata was created after a roundtable event brought together leading figures in the cultural heritage sector.

The White Paper deals with the risks and opportunities of open licensing of the datasets held by Europe's cultural heritage organisations.  It includes case studies from leading open data organisations.
