It would be nice to have an inkling of what this ODC might be about. Since the original poster used a minimum of space, I'll elaborate. This proposed project aims to gather local governments to devise and agree to adopt a standardized set of terms and conditions for data distribution, the environment digital data sharing.
In short, the proposal suggests a collaborative project in which public sector data providers and private sector data distributors cooperatively negotiate a set of standards and agreements for creating a more efficient market mechanism to distribute dGI. This is what the Open Data Consortium wants to do.
This is important stuff. Have a look. ftp://shell7.ba.best.com/pub/joffe/
