Focused curation
(Optional) Setting this flag to true indicates that the licensing was combinatorially complicated enough (as is the case in some commercial licenses) that the curator chose to wear a single "hat" during the process. From the site text: "While we try to cover as much of the licensing possibilities of a data resource that we can, in a few cases we may choose a particular "hat" to wear while evaluating to prevent a combinatorial explosion, which may also reduce the clarity of our curations for the community. In these cases, we may take on the role of a (1) non-commercial (2) academic (3) group that is (4) based in the US and trying to (5) create an aggregating resource, noting that other entities may have different results in the license commentary."
false
Issues
(Optional) Structured issues with the license. For every issue discovered with a resource, there should be a corresponding item in the license-issues field that marks the /exact/ violation, along with any comments. This field can be used by resources as the first step to improvement, as well as clarify any surrounding circumstances. Any issues or thoughts about a resource that do not slot into one of the criteria violations can go into the license-commentary field.
Criteria A.2: Custom license, but consistent.
Criteria B.2.1: Scope is incomplete - they claim no responsibility for data from other sources on their site.
Criteria D.1.2: No re-use allowed, just use.
Criteria E.1.2: No re-use allowed, just use.
Commentary
(Optional) Further commentary on the license, possibly including the though process of the curations and things like locations of additional licenses.

Controversial
(Optional) Marker noting that there was some extended internal discussion or controversy about the evaluation of the licensing terms.
