Interesting to see the ESG data class come to the fore. We're seeing more and more licensing of 'alternative' data, and new commercial uses being put to existing data sets.

This has been driving more and more business in licensing, controlling and asserting ownership over these new types of data.

We're expecting to see more and more to-ing and fro-ing around IP rights in this data - what 'facts' and observations about the world people seek to protect through copyright and through careful licensing and contracting.
