>  
> Today The National Archives has launched version 2 of the UK Government Licensing Framework (UKGLF).  UKGLF 2.0 builds on the success of the Open Government Licence (OGL), and enables easy re-use of a wider range of public sector information.  The OGL remains the default licence for the re-use of public sector information including Crown copyright.
>  
> The key changes are:-
> the introduction of the Non-Commercial Government Licence;
> Guidance on developing licences where charges are made;
> Updated policy on licensing software and source codes;
> Clarification of ownership and issues relating to third party rights.
> The UKGLF 2.0 also provides an effective licensing framework that will enable the UK government to comply with European licensing requirements for spatial and geographic data under the INSPIRE Directive.
>  
>  
> I have included a link to our press release http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/news/604.htm and the UKGLF 2.0 can be viewed athttp://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/information-management/uk-gov-licensing-framework.htm
>  
> Thank you to all those who have given comments and feedback on the draft documents, your input has been invaluable. 
>  
> If you have any further comments or questions about the UKGLF 2.0 please feel free to get in touch with us at psi@nationalarchives.gsi.gov.uk
