Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

Creative Commons has released version 4.0 of the CC license suite - the licenses used by the Wikimedia movement, as well as much of the rest of the free culture movement. In this talk, we'll discuss the 4.0 licenses, how they've changed from previous versions, and how they might impact Wikimedia projects and the movement.

Topics to be discussed in-depth will include:

  • Attribution: what has changed? what works better?
  • Share-alike: has anything changed? are there implications for Wikimedians?
  • Structure: how did CC reorganize the licenses?
  • Readability: what did CC do to make the licenses more readable? Did it work?
  • Databases: what does the new database clause do? What does this mean for Wikipedia, Wikidata, and other Wikimedia projects?
  • Internationalization: what has changed for for international versions of the license?
  • Upgrading: what does it mean to have new versions of the license?

If a community discussion about upgrading to 4.0 has begun by Wikimania (possible but not guaranteed), the talk will also review the state of that discussion.

  10. 60 minutes is quite a lot, should be done in half. NaBUru38 23:20, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
