I think I can quote anything from All non-GFDL texts[edit]

I want to cantact the Wikimedia foundation.

How to contact? I can't find the foundation's web page.

Korean Wikipedia Admins say that All non-GFDL texts can not be quoted, because Korean Wikipedia do not approve the fair use.

I can not quote anything from All non-GFDL texts?

What is the foundation's quotation policy?

Why the foundation makes the wikiquote korean?

I think I can quote anything from All non-GFDL texts.

I think I can quote anything from All non-GFDL texts in en-wikipedia, ko-wikipedia, ja-wikibooks, zh-wikiquote, etc.

Korean Wikipedia Admins are right? or wrong? -- WonRyong (talk) 00:59, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

User:Daniel say foundation:Resolution:Licensing_policy.
But it rules only for media file upload. not for text quotation.
For example, "Exemption Doctrine Policy is A project-specific policy...that permits the upload of copyrighted materials..."

Question to en-wiki users[edit]

en:Bill_Gates

Early rounds of his deposition show him offering obfuscatory answers and saying 'I don't recall,' so many times that even the presiding judge had to chuckle. Worse, many of the technology chief's denials and pleas of ignorance were directly refuted by prosecutors with snippets of e-mail Gates both sent and received.

It is non-GFDL quotation.

In english wikipedia, many quotation marked text, saying is non-GFDL quotation.

Abstract[edit]

  1. Many non-GFDL or GFDL or Public Doamain text quotaions are exist in ko-wiki.
  2. Usually, All Korean admins and users did not disscuss for deletion, did not delete it, etc.
  3. But now, suddenly, Korean Wikipedia Admins say that All non-GFDL texts quotation is prohibited.
  4. So, I ask. "What is the policy cluase? I don't see it."
  5. Korean community have no policy.
  6. So, I ask to the foundation. "What is the policy cluase?" -- WonRyong 02:15, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

According to wikimedia:Resolution:Licensing policy,

"1. All projects are expected to host only content which is under a Free Content License, or which is otherwise free as recognized by the 'Definition of Free Cultural Works' as referenced above.",

EDP is "A project-specific policy, in accordance with United States law and the law of countries where the project content is predominantly accessed (if any), that recognizes the limitations of copyright law (including case law) as applicable to the project, and permits the upload of copyrighted materials that can be legally used in the context of the project, regardless of their licensing status. Examples include: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Non-free_content and http://pl.wikinews.org/wiki/Wikinews:Dozwolony_u%C5%BCytek"

Korean Wikipedia didn't approve non-free quotation. So non-free quotation is still prohibited.--Kwj2772 08:23, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Why? You have a policy or guideline clause? I don't see it. Risriction freedom needs a clear law clause. -- WonRyong 11:37, 9 December 2008 (UTC)


For the projects which currently do not have an EDP in place, the following action shall be taken:

    • As of March 23, 2007, any newly uploaded files under an unacceptable license shall be deleted.
    • The Foundation resolves to assist all project communities who wish to develop an EDP with their process of developing it.
    • By March 23, 2008, all existing files under an unacceptable license as per the above must either be accepted under an EDP, or shall be deleted.

Policy rules that text shall be deleted? You can see the paragraph "text shall be deleted" in that policy? That policy only rules "files shall be deleted" -- WonRyong 11:45, 9 December 2008 (UTC)


Hi. I am neither a lawyer nor a Foundation trustee/officer, but here are my comments. Japanese Wikipedia had discussions on this topic from time to time, and my comments are largely based on that.

I think that the Wikimedia Foundation does not prohibit quoting of copyrighted text that is done in a legal manner. The existence of wikiquote projects that accept fair use attests that, I guess. Is it possible to quote a text in a GFDL'd document without violating Korean law? I think you need to ask a Korean lawyer who knows copyright and free license.

But if Korean Wikipedia wants to prohibit any quoting, the Foundation might accept that position because each Wikipedia is more or less a self-governing project, and the Foundation most of the time respects the project community's decision.

In case it is of your interest, there were discussions like Do_fair_use_images_violate_the_GFDL? here in the past as well.
