Free Documentation License 1.3 Subject description: New license for Wikipedia?
Free Documentation License 1.3
The Free Software Foundation has announced the release of version 1.3 of the GNU Free Documentation License. The big change would appear to be a clause allowing FDL-licensed text to be relicensed to the Creative Commons attribution-sharealike license. "This new permission has been added at the request of the Wikimedia Foundation, which oversees the Wikipedia project. The same terms are available to any public wiki that uses materials available under the new license. The Wikimedia Foundation will now initiate a process of community discussion and voting to determine whether or not to use CC-BY-SA 3.0 as the license for Wikipedia."
