I don't think this did the rounds here, ... but it's a big foafy
dataset, and now with a better rights situation...

Hi All,

I just noticed that OCLC have done their major release of VIAF meaning
that millions of author records are now available as Open Data (under
Open Data Commons Attribution license):

<http://viaf.org/viaf/data/>

I've updated the DataHub dataset for this to reflect all the new info:

<http://datahub.io/dataset/viaf>

This is great news.

Regards,

Rufus
