[Wikimedia Announcements] Discussing Creative Commons 4.0

Stephen LaPorte
Hello all, 

Today we opened a discussion asking for community input on a proposed change to the Wikimedia Terms of Use to upgrade to Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license. The new license is easier to read and more internationally friendly, so we hope it will ensure that people can easily and freely share or remix Wikimedia content. The amendment to our Terms of Use is currently available in German, French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, and we welcome further translations and discussion in any language.

For your review, you may find the proposed amendment and background information here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Terms_of_use/Creative_Commons_4.0/Legal_note

Please join the discussion on the talk page: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Terms_of_use/Creative_Commons_4.0 

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and comments.

Best,
Stephen

thank you very much, it's about time this happens! It might be an idea to
detail the exact license differences a little bit more prominent?

Info WorldUniversity
Great, Stephen and Rupert!

I'd like to invite you both (and all Wikidatans in the SF Bay Area) to the
Wikidata 4th birthday party on Wednesday, October 26 from 12:30-1:30 at Red
Door Coffee SF on 111 Minna Street -
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Fourth_Birthday/Events. Perhaps we
can talk further about some of these CC 4.0 questions there.

I'm also going to bring a birthday cake for everyone.

Friendly Wikidata cheers, Scott
