Imagine a service that claims all of its data is Open Data, but:
- Data dumps are not available
- Data is huge
- The only way to get data is the API, which is limited to 50 requests per day (0.001% of total)
- Using several API keys for the same project/endeavour is forbidden and frowned upon
Seeing it branded as Open Data (BY-NC-SA), many people are contributing new items, at a faster rate than 50 per day.
Question: Can this be called Open Data?
Or does the idea of Open Data somehow require that it is possible to download the whole data without resorting to subterfuges?
