Hi Brad,

Maybe you already knew about this but I would edit the dataset from CKAN
adding the  lodcloud.needsfixing tag as explained in [1] saying the dataset
is no longer available. Replacing the site by a WS returning a 410 makes
sense for me and I can assume that CKAN people will remove it from the LOD
asap given these two conditions.

Best
Iker
