In July 2017, there was a discussion on Wikimedia-l regarding Amazon's compliance with the attribution requirement of Wikipedia's Creative Commons license, when article contents were reused by Amazon's products. Then-Director of Strategic Partnerships Adele Vrana announced on Wikimedia-l that she had reached out to Amazon to clarify the issues. To the best of my knowledge, no further updates were given. Could you please provide an update? This may potentially be a rather sensitive issue, as shortly after this, Amazon donated $1 million to the WMF, and it's important to avoid the appearance of impropriety. --Yair rand (talk) 00:05, 23 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I agree it's an important topic. Wikimedia Foundation is not in a position to do copyleft enforcement, but it should educate about copyleft. It would be nice to know whether that was attempted, or whether WMF only sounded like a beggar. Nemo 10:04, 23 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
