Subject Re: [jira] [Created] (LEGAL-154) May we include an index of word counts derived from wikipedia articles related to medicine?
Date Wed, 09 Jan 2013 10:41:36 GMT
HI,

I would like to add one more point here. The below mentioned condition is
set forth in the reply given by wikimedia foundation:
"A specific permission for reusing the content is not necessary, as long as
the re-user observes the license conditions. CC-BY-SA allows commercial
use. The only thing that needs to be done is attribution ('BY'), which can
simply be a link to the history page of an article."

As the license here is CC-BY-SA ( Attribution + Share Alike), there are two
conditions here, one is attribution which is clearly explained by Wikimedia
and another is 'share alike' which states that if you modify or add any
text to wikipedia article/index (which you plan to include), you have to
share all the modification or addition to the same license (CC-BY-SA).

Hope this helps.

Best,
Aahit Gaba
