LXer: New license for Wikipedia

Published at LXer:

In a recent vote, the active majority of Wikipedia authors voted for dual licensing for Wikipedia content: In addition to the previous GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL) used by articles and other media, a new "Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license" (CC-BY-SA) will also be used. The amendment will affect all Wikipedia content, as existing content is also to be re-licensed.
