In the past, when it was demonstrated that a ported license was needed, Creative Commons worked with experts to craft a localized version of its six, core international licenses. Over 50 ported license suites exist. These ported licenses are based on and compatible with the international license suite, differing only in that they have been modified to reflect local nuances in how terms and conditions are expressed, drafting protocols and, of course, language. They are effective worldwide, as is the international license suite.

NZ differences from England and Wales (seemingly out of date):
For example, you'll see that "attorney" is not a term of the art in NZ, and "adaptation" is preferred over "derivative work" to bring the terminology in line with NZ law.

Great to see more and more of these official maps becoming available.
Is this something that can be (has been?) incorporated into the likes of OpenStreetMap?
The full dataset (544GB) is available to download or order, so presumably it is technically possible.
If our worldwide imagery supporters (Bing and Mapbox Satellite) provide equal-quality imagery then there's no great urgency. But these local sources can often be better than what's available elsewhere.

It's worth nothing that LINZ have been extremely helpful with things like licensing and funding to get core topographic data into the OSM set for New Zealand. See this page:
