The Swedish Agency for Digital Government reports their licensing policies

Sweden refers to EUPL and JLA

Published on: 21/07/2022 News

Under the title “Rekommendation om öppna licenser och immaterialrätt” (Recommendation on open licenses and intellectual property rights) the Swedish policy details the licensing options regarding the distribution or communication of both public sector data and computer source code.

Regarding public sector data, the policy details the various disribution possibilities provided by the Creative Common (CC) licences: CC0, CC-BY, CC-BY-SA - adding, when appropriate, the provision "ND" (no derivatives allowed) or "NC" (no commercial use allowed).

Regarding computer programs (source code and object code) the policy refers to the European Union Public Licence (EUPL, Swedish version) and refers to the Joinup Licensing Assistant (JLA) for providing information about the open source licences content and compatibility.

The Swedish licensing policy is similar to policy adopted by the European Commission.
