Hi Brian

All Federal level Govt GIS which is publically released in Australia is done so under Creative Commons (CC-by) and is treated as Open PSI. In the same vein I suspect you may find there are US jurisdictions which may have moved to CC and just bundle datasets inc GIS into the PSI CC licensed space.

Certain jusrisdictions in Australia (Brisbane City Council for instance) release thier GIS under CC-0 - that is Public Domain, no restrictions at all.

GIS Web Services often are an overlooked area here - its not seen as released or published in the classic sense, and service usage rights are often very liberal.

A US example of GIS btw is PASDA in Penn. http://www.pasda.psu.edu/about/

Cheers

C.
