"The coolest thing with your data will be done by someone else". This old motto remains valid today. The very nature of big data is that they can be reused for purposes different from the one for which they were originally gathered. While traditionally the open data movement has focussed on how the private sector can create value from data held by government, the opposite case deserves also policy attention. Indeed, data held by the private sector can be used to address public issues.
