We've rounded up some of the reasons governments cite for not releasing data to the public. We're asking for help now in refuting those reasons. You can read more in this blog post: http://sunlightfoundation.com/blog/2013/09/05/reasons-not-to-release-data/
We're especially interested in how you refute statements like these:
It’s expensive / We don't have the budget
1. It requires expensive software 2. It would be costly to provide copies of data in open formats 3. It would require a lot of staff time 4. It would require new processes and staff training 5. Keeping everything updated would be costly
What's the best response when a government says it can't release data due to cost concerns?
