Seeking copyright clarification and licensing terms compatible with WMF[edit]

Hi *,

Thanks for discussing the licensing terms of *.

The * project involves contributing and developing intellectual property about * into the knowledge commons. This project utilises the Wikimedia Foundation's servers and wiki software.

The project is currently located at:

We are seeking clarification of the copyright owner and licensing for the * resource. More specifically, we are seeking to determine whether the materials are compatible with the license requirements for material contributed to the Wikimedia Foundation wikis which are described here: http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Terms_of_Use_(2012)/en#7._Licensing_of_Content

Where a user contributes content to the Wikimedia Foundation to which s/he doesn't own the copyright, then s/he needs to indicate that permission has been received from the copyright owner to upload the content under a compatible license. A standard form for indicating permission can be found here: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:OTRS#Declaration_of_consent_for_all_enquiries

A list of Wikimedia Foundation compatible licenses can be found here: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Copyright_tags. For example, http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Copyright_tags#Free_Creative_Commons_licenses includes licenses which are consistent with the http://www.ausgoal.gov.au/ framework.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss further.
