    seems fair:
    “To download bulk data from OpenSecrets.org, users must register on the site and agree to prominently credit the Center for Responsive Politics, along with other terms of service. CRP is making its data available through a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike license, which allows users to remix, tweak, build upon and share the Center’s work non-commercially. CRP will continue to offer its data to commercial users for a negotiable fee.”

    The service OpenSecrets provides is really pretty amazing. To gather together all this data and make it so readily available to the public is a very admirable challenge. I think it rocks.

    The OpenSecrets site has been nominated for a Webby this year. I encourage everyone to go check it out and cast your vote for it at the People’s Voice site:

    Private licensing of (effectively) government data. Cash Money.
