Local Government publications
Clarification requested as to OGL applicability in relation to works of UK Local Government (i.e works produced under nominal crown copyright by District and County councils), as opposed to national (UK) and develoved regional government? Sfan00 IMG 12:11, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Supporting material for Legislation
Clarification requested: OGL applicability to materials provided in support of Legislation. The specific example I had mind was plans and sections provided in support of Orders made under the Transport and Works Act, or in support of full blown 'railways' bills in the UK Parliment ( for example Crossrail)...
- Owned by the Royal Mail and used commercially. Note that there are probably complications about the use of Royal marks here, so even "PD" items (over ?50 or something years old) might be not "open".

government OGL contract, material usage
I might be contracted soon on an OGL project. This would involve bringing material from wikibooks onto another platform, and all updates on this platform fed back into wikibooks. The only problem here is that the platform will be OGL. Is there a problem with:
OGL -> CC 3.0 SA
CC 3.0 SA -> OGL
UK Birth/Death/Marriage certificates
Questions have been raised from time to time as to whether the OGL applies to British birth/death/marriage certificates. The answer seems to be a qualified yes, provided that all parties named on the certificate are deceased, and that any living parties should have their names redacted before certificates are uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. A detailed discussion may be found on this Commons page. Muzilon (talk) 11:35, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
The statement that the OGL does not cover military insignia appears to be incorrect. See the discussion at c:Commons:Deletion requests/File:Arctic Star medal.jpg, which has a link to an MOD page with an OGL release. Several other OGL images of military insignia are available on the same site.. Please correct or clarify the text. Thanks, Verbcatcher (talk) 09:38, 6 April 2020 (UTC)
