  1. Dysprosia 22:45, 6 September 2005 (UTC) (n,w,b) -- weakly in support, due to its similarity with the much simpler and less complex BSD license. If support for BSD or BSD-type licenses fails this would be my second choice.

  4. McCart42 13:30, 7 September 2005 (UTC) en I find this a good, simple option. To those who say it is too complicated (and the BSD license is better for this reason): have you seen the human-readable summary? It's not CC's fault that lawyers like legalese. They wrote three versions of it: one for humans, one for computers (so you can use plugins like mozcc to show license information as you browse), and one for lawyers. Don't just read the one for lawyers and say it's too complex - I'm sure you wouldn't want to read the one for computers either. To be fair, I don't have a problem with BSD license, but I don't think it does anything different than CC-by. (see also for the mozilla addons page for mozcc)
    Releasing one's content under an open license musn't be done frivolously, it's important to understand the implications of releasing content under a certain license. CC-by's legalese makes this more difficult. One must read the legalese to fully understand it, the "version for humans" does not exactly spell everything out either. I completely comprehend the implications etc. of the BSD license; I don't with CC-by. That's all I was trying to say re. the complexity of CC-by. Dysprosia 02:40, 10 September 2005 (UTC)

  11. Eloquence 22:53, 7 September 2005 (UTC) (I would prefer public domain, but the international legal situation would make that more of an activist than a practical stance)
  12. IlyaHaykinson 02:25, 8 September 2005 (UTC) (en) — strongly support due to minimum of restrictions on reusing content.

  20. Munchkinguy 02:28, 10 September 2005 (UTC) My vote stays with this one unless I can see more details on the "Wikinews License".
    What you see with the WNL, is what you get - there's no need for more "detail". That's the beauty of it. Licenses don't have to be the badly written monstrosities the CC ones are. Dan100 07:14, 10 September 2005 (UTC)

  24. PiaCarrot 22:15, 19 September 2005 (UTC) -- Some edition(For example, Japanese) is licensed under CC-BY, so I think Wikinews should be licenced at least under CC-BY. ja.wn
