Slashdot points us to a report that Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk has declared that anything funded with public money will be in the public domain (Google translation from the original Polish). It sounds like there was some hedging on this, as he perhaps suggests that they still need to classify what exactly will be public, but it's encouraging. It's also not entirely clear from the report if this just refers to state documents, or also the output of research funded by the state. Hopefully we'll get some clarification soon.
