Wolters Kluwer Deutschland publish 2 legal thesauri as Linked Open Data

From 12 July 2012, two thesauri (controlled vocabularies) covering juridical/legal topics are provided for free re-use as Linked Open Data: Onethesaurus is covering topics around labor law in German language, while the other one describes German and European courts. Both vocabularies can be accessed at: vocabulary.wolterskluwer.de/.
