In response, RadioDNS has started work on a Fair Use Policy document, and we are circulating this first draft for comments.
This document is not intended to be a licence or a contract document, but we would expect that the licences that broadcasters offer manufacturers would not contradict the principles laid out in the Fair Use Policy.
Since the original distribution, we're received a number of comments directly to the project office (feed...@radiodns.org
Two clarifications will be made for the next version:
* The Fair Use Policy doesn't restrict use of metadata and content in any way, but an end-user should probably check uses not described in the Fair Use Policy.
* The Fair Use Policy doesn't enforce licensing or use of client identification keys. It just says that *if* a manufacturer would like to get a licence or a client identification key, they can be reasonably confident a broadcaster will give them one.
