Hi Matthew,

Theatricalia is a great site and I was wondering if the backing database/datasets were open -- i.e. available in bulk and openly licensed [1]?

I wasn't able to find an explicit statement that the data was open such as a reference to an open knowledge or data license [2] on the site so I'm writing to find out what the exact situation is.

Thank you very much for your time and I look forward to receiving your response.

Regards,

Rufus Pollock

Hi Rufus,

Sorry for the delay in replying, I'm very behind with my personal email :(

The data created on Theatricalia is available under the ODbL and I've added some words to that effect to the About page. At the moment, I'm afraid it's not available in bulk as per your Access condition, as I haven't yet had time to write that, though anyone is welcome to get in touch if they need data for some purpose in the mean time (and I'm hoping to open source the code at some point so others can help, though for various reasons that's sadly not trivial).

Hope that's helpful :-)

ATB, Matthew
