As noted here before, Oregon has been going through a challenge to its copyrighted statutes. The battle appears to be over now and the the statutes are free! mmmm… we love free government information!
On June 19th the Legislative Counsel held a hearing with activist Carl Malamud from Public.Resource.org and others to discuss the issue…. In the end the Legislative Counsel voted to not assert copyright over the Oregon Revised Statutes.
This is a great victory for openness and democracy.
