Re: National Land Survey open data licence - version 1.0 - 1 May 2012
I'm not sure why a open source license wouldn't work?

It seems that these are OK, since these notices could be placed
into an "About" box or similar structure?

This one seems problematic since it would require some sort of
license assent mechanism. Perhaps this requirement could be
softened to be a conditional, if you require acceptance of your
own license, you must require acceptance of this one?

How do you comply with this given the other requirements?
