We suggest to include the definition of "Access" in the license document.The access here is implicitly through a human clicking download link without any restrictions as required under the RTI act. Some data is provided through APIs. We suggest toincludedata, metadata, structure of API's under the license . This is important to use the data provided by APIs and also Interoperability between the systems using these APIs.
I think it should be access without any constraints for public information as it is the right under RTI act. It should never have any form of authentication what so ever, since the scope of license is only open data and not restricted data of the govt.
A limited warranty on the quality and completeness of data is required for the data to be useful and trustworthy. If there is no minimum warranty from data provider then the data becomes useless and unreliable. We suggest removing the section"Under any circumstances, the user may not hold the data provider(s) responsible for: i) any error, omission or loss of data"from the warranty clause. In addition we suggest to digitally sign the data by providing the hash of files or detached digital signatures which can be used to verify datasets thus increasing the trustworthiness of data and usage in research and development.
As per the RTI act, the information/data provider is liable to provide information upon request. Proactive disclosure helps in reduction of requests to the data provider. It is the duty of the provider to make sure that public data is continuously updated. This clause may not be ideal to be part of the license and we request you to remove it.
Exemptions should not be part of the license. License should be concerned about the way a given dataset is shared or distributed rather than what kind of data it is. It shouldn't matter to the license to what type of data license is being applied. We suggest this entire section to be removed. We understand the importance of exemptions and recommend they be made as guidelines to data providers and not users.
