It is an interesting question.
Previously the CLDR project was created by IBM as an part of its "ICU"
open-source project, before it was splitted rapidly from it and maintained
as a separate open-source project. Now the project has been transfered
legally to Unicode (even if IBM, among others, still supports the project
by still donating resources to the project now managed by the Unicode
But I am still looking at the new licencing terms made by Unicode. Due to
this apparent absence, it seems that the previous licence from the IBM
open-source project still applies, because this is really a derivative work
based on the original IBM open-source project. May be the licencing terms
are still not ready, because there are some legal wordings to create that
will preserve the legitimate original IBM rights, and allow correct
management of the project by Unicode itself. So the CLDR working group
should work on publishing their policy reagarding their licencing terms, and
sign a formal agreement with IBM regarding the chane of open-source licence!
