Verbazingwekkend hoe 40 jaar nadat openbaarheid het absolute uitgangspunt van de wet is geworden (openbaar, tenzij), de WOB en de aankomende WOO vooral nog altijd kramp veroorzaakt.

A move that surprises absolutely no one: Google won't pay French publishers for snippets. France is the first EU country to transcribe the new EU Copyright Directive into law. This directive contains a new neighbouri

Je kunt bij stikstof wel bekvechten over de berekende cijfers, maar fundamenteler is dat de regering beperking bepleit maar niet de consequenties van beperking aanvaardt, en wegmoffelt met 'toekomstige compensatie'
