Are the long strings of all caps really necessary? Splargo (talk) 22:36, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

IIRC they're the legal equiBold textvalent of speaking to someone with a stern look on your face Gurch (talk) 23:27, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
But the internet standard is that it's shouting. Surely Lessig, Stallman, Wales, and the boards of both the Wiki-media and Free Software foundations would all prefer legibility to following a tradition which has zero case law or statute or anything but tradition from an earlier era behind it. Is there any reason to doubt that? Splargo (talk) 05:15, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
It's not tradition, the Uniform Commercial Code requires that certain contract clauses be rendered "conspicuous", particularly when their effect is to negate or limit rights that one would normally have in a similar situation. Though not the only means of generating "conspicuous" text, writing in ALL CAPS is a means that has a well-defined body of case law behind it and so is the usual choice. The formatting is deliberate and well-motivated, and should not be removed. Dragons flight (talk) 11:34, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
"Under the Uniform Commercial Code, 'A term or clause is conspicuous when it is so written that a reasonable person against whom it is to operate ought to have noticed it'; whether a term is conspicuous is a legal question. (U.C.C. Section 400.1-201(10), RSMo 1994.... courts examining the question of the conspicuousness of exculpatory clauses have adopted the U.C.C. definition as authoritative.) Methods for making a language conspicuous include, but are not limited to, rendering language in all capital letters, in larger type, or in other contrasting type or color." Warren v. Paragon (1997) [Boldface added as a self-referential example.] There are no reasons that legibility ought to decrease the probability of notice. Splargo (talk) 11:54, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
Yes, there are other approaches to creating conspicuous text, but they wouldn't be Creative Common's choice. Because such stylings have legal meaning behind them, I don't believe we should change them without their permission. Dragons flight (talk) 11:58, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
I believe the choice of valid conspicuous styling is insignificant, but we owe a duty to readers to enhance legibility when possible. Splargo (talk) 12:27, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
It really isn't insignificant. Almost everyone adopts the ALL CAPS convention because there is substantial case law built up around that style. It's a legal question and not an issue I support changing on our own. Dragons flight (talk) 14:30, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
I suggest changing the text to normal case and displaying it with "text-transform:uppercase". This also makes it easier to read with text-to-speech systems. --Ysangkok (talk) 03:14, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Human readable version?

yes sir! It would be nice if we had the human readable version of this license up front, rather than simply giving all of the lawyerese text from the start... Mike Peel (talk) 22:59, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Agreed. Since Creative Commons prefers to link to the more human readable version at http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ then we should certainly include that text in an article message box on this project page, like the {{ombox}} below. Splargo (talk) 19:15, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
Looks good. But where did you get the passage at the bottom from? "Think of it as the user-friendly interface to the Legal Code beneath." etc. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 08:03, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
I clicked on "Disclaimer" at the bottom right of http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ - I've un-bolded the other pop-ups, which I don't think we support including, because of problems with printing. Splargo (talk) 11:13, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
I like the idea of including the deed conceptually, but I'm not sure about the current formatting. If the legal code and deed appear on the same page, I think the separation should be clearer. Perhaps given the box it's own title and move the disclaimer immediately below that? Also, not sure I like the icon in this case. Dragons flight (talk) 11:40, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
I've removed the disclaimer. Was it really needed? I agree that the formatting could be improved. It would be nice if it could look more like http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ with the separate icons for each section. But this is a reasonable version to implement now I think. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 11:58, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
I already had removed part of the disclaimer, but you're right, the part you took out was also redundant. Is the Creative Commons logo better, as changed above? Either image is fine with me. I would also be fine with re-using the separate icons, but that would probably violate the {{ombox}} conventions. Splargo (talk) 12:02, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
I added the kind of header I had in mind, and placed the disclaimer at the front of the box. Dragons flight (talk) 12:17, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

As a secondary question, would hyperlinking terms be better?

I prefer the hyperlinked version. Splargo (talk) 12:29, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Like the wikilinking. I don't like the long URL at the bottom. Could this be shortened or removed somehow? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 14:22, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
It's actually fairly short as URLs go. I like the idea of spelling it out, since that would continue working even if someone prints the license. Dragons flight (talk) 14:33, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure that this is a good idea. Even looking at WP:Text of the GNU Free Documentation License you'll note that it is just the license (no box at the top explaining the license). I think this page should just be the text of the license. Of course it is going to be legalese but that's the point, really. - Rjd0060 (talk) 15:20, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
Well yes, but unlike FSF and the GFDL, Creative Commons provides their own summary and actually recommends it as the page people link to, so I don't think the situations are entirely comparable. I do think if we include the summary it needs to be clear that it is not itself part of the license. Dragons flight (talk) 15:33, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
Fair enough. So long as there is a clear distinction as to where the license text actually beings, that should be fine. - Rjd0060 (talk) 16:03, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

For those confused by the term “unported”, it is Creative Commons’s term for “generic, referring to international treaties, not localized (‘ported’) to a given country’s laws”, as per this explanation:

I.e., it is the ur-license on which particular national (properly, jurisdictional) licenses are based.

policy?

About the June 18 edit, which promoted this page to policy ... was there any discussion? Are there any other policy pages that are permanently full-protected? - Dank (push to talk) 23:56, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Lots of discussion and a vote, across all wiki-projects, which resolved to migrate GFDL to CC-BY-SA. For full details see Wikipedia:Licensing update and m:Wikipedia:Licensing update. —  Tivedshambo  (t/c) 06:00, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
No, I know about that, it's hard not to :) I mean: read WP:POLICY, and you'll see that there are certain processes commonly used for promoting a particular page to policy status, and certain things that policy pages have in common ... for instance, they're not permanently full-protected. So ... should this page be a policy page? Probably not, I think it would make more sense to link it from a policy page. Although it's not a "disclaimer", exactly, the closest match I can find for this type of page is the "disclaimer" subcat of Category:Wikipedia legal policies. - Dank (push to talk) 12:44, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Dank is right that this page is not exactly the same as other policies, but it and WP:GFDL can be considered exceptions to the rule; most policies are promulgated from inside the en.wiki community and promoted "bottom-up"; the copyright notices are "top-down" policies, in that they've been implemented by the Foundation across all the Foundation wikis. The reason it's fully protected is that, unlike other policies, it's a legal document, and it needs to be a faithful reproduction of the official CC-BY-SA text on the Creative Commons website, and it's not negotiable like other policies are. This is a somewhat unique case not covered by WP:POLICY.--Aervanath (talk) 11:31, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
You're right ... they're not even similar to the disclaimers, because we occasionally edit the disclaimers. They should be on meta along with the other pages that shouldn't be edited by Wikipedians. We can link them from a policy page and say that our policy is to follow them. - Dank (push to talk) 12:17, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
m:GFDL is already on meta, although they don't appear to have a copy of CC-BY-SA; all the references they have are direct links to the copy on the Creative Commons website itself. I think it is better to have a local copy that is protected; it makes it easier to link to, for one thing.--Aervanath (talk) 12:27, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Okay, but are we agreed that permanently full-protecting policy pages is a bad idea? Let's at least remove the policy cat. - Dank (push to talk) 13:00, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
I would agree that permanent full-protection of other policy pages isn't good, as long as we're clear that this page and WP:GFDL stand as exceptions to that rule. And I would object to removing the policy cat. A lot of policy is based on our copyright documents, it seems odd not to include this. I would hope that people looking at that category would see this page, since it is one of the two completely non-negotiable policies we have.--Aervanath (talk) 16:59, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
(outdent) I just stumbled across Wikipedia_talk:Policies_and_guidelines#Global_policy.3F, which leads me to believe you're trying to straighten out the structure of the policy and guideline cats. I think I'd suggest that we work on straightening out the general structure of those categories first, and then we can figure out where to place this page and WP:GFDL in that structure. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aervanath (talkcontribs)
Personally, I'm inclined to agree that the licenses are something other than "policy" in the usual sense, and I don't mind if they are removed from the category or added to some other category. That said, I don't see it as a big deal either way. Dragons flight (talk) 10:35, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

←Has anyone made the necessary changes to policies, guidelines, essays, and other pages yet?

And we'll need to change several sections of WP:PROTECT explaining that these two pages are exceptions to the rules for how to request and make changes to protected pages. - Dank (push to talk) 12:19, 6 July 2009 (UTC) tweaked 12:52, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

I expect you're making these proposals somewhat facetiously, but I'll bite. The changes aren't necessary; see Wikipedia:POLICY#Sources_of_Wikipedia_policy, which already states that one of the sources of Wikipedia policy is "Declarations from Jimmy Wales, the Board, or the Developers, particularly for copyright, legal issues, or server load." This would certainly fall under that category.--Aervanath (talk) 17:29, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
More light-heartedly than facetiously, and yes, if the WMF board says that something needs to be a policy page, then we can adapt to their wishes, despite the fact that "policy" and "legal document" are more opposite concepts than similar concepts. Did the WMF request that we make this a policy page? - Dank (push to talk) 17:44, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
No, there is no requirement that it be labeled as policy per se. Obviously it has to be treated as the official law of the land, but how one chooses to label and categorize it is a local decision. I'm pretty sure this was marked as policy primarily because the GFDL page had been so flagged for years. Dragons flight (talk) 17:47, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
That is probably the reason why it was added to the category in the first place. Also, I would be hesitant to exclude our copyrights from the policy category just because they didn't carry a {{policy}} tag; unless there's a better way to categorize them to make them easier to find, I think that a policy category is where people would look for them.--Aervanath (talk) 18:13, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
But yes, I agree with Dragons flight that the WMF has not made a statement that this should be labeled as policy; they haven't really addressed the issue, as it doesn't really matter what we call it, as long as we follow it. So I guess I've talked myself into not caring where its categorized, as long as the categorization makes clear that it's not to be messed with. Perhaps Category:Stuff that should absolutely not be messed with, and if you do we'll beat you up? :)--Aervanath (talk) 18:33, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
And I agree that it's okay to transclude this material into a policy page, as long as the policy page is something solid, more than just this transclusion. And that sounds like a good cat to put the license page in, Aervanath! - Dank (push to talk) 19:16, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Typos

There are a couple of typos in the license. The two that jumped out at me are in section 1(b), where it refers the reader to section 1(f) but it clearly means to send them to 1(h), and where it refers the reader to view the adaptations "defined below", even though the definition of them is above. The typos are original to the license from Creative Commons, and I've told them, but of course it cannot be changed since it is a legal document. I just thought I'd point them out here. kmccoy (talk) 23:38, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Edit request from Sammcdon, 30 September 2010

{{edit protected}} Request the following be deleted as irrelevant to the court's decision:

Sammcdon (talk) 14:22, 30 September 2010 (UTC)British pathologist Professor Keith Simpson was invited by the Canadian government to review the forensic evidence.[5] On May 4, 1967, the Supreme Court (Hall J. dissenting) held that, if Truscott's appeal had been heard by the court, it would have been dismissed.[4]

Professor Keith Simpson's testimony was irrelevant to any decision about the case. There is no evidence that the Supreme Court held that if Truscott's appeal had been heard by the court, it would have been dismissed.[4]

Request the following be inserted: 1967, May 4: New forensic evidence was presented on his behalf, and Truscott testified before the Supreme Court of Canada and got a chance to tell his story for the first time. Truscott and 25 other witnesses testified before the Court, telling their story to the best of their abilities. After a two week hearing before the Supreme Court, Canada’s top judges ruled 8-1 against Truscott getting a new trial and he was returned to prison to serve the remainder of his sentence. Those eight judges watched and listened carefully to Steven Truscott as he gave his testimony and it was clear to them that his testimony was vague and confused. The Supreme Court stated that “There were many incredibilities inherent in the evidence given by Truscott before us and we do not believe his testimony” The Joint opinion of Canada’s Supreme Court Justices: “The verdict of the jury, read in the light of the charge of the trial judge, makes it clear that they were satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that the facts, which they found to be established by the evidence which they accepted, were not only consistent with the guilt of Truscott but were inconsistent with any rational conclusion other than that Steven Truscott was the guilty person.” (12)

Amazon.com Hosting of Wikipedia information for profit

Is this legal under the current license? Perhaps we can make a change to prevent this kind of abuse since it is intended to draw internet traffic away from Wikipedia proper and into a format that cannot be freely edited by the community. This loss of potential editors and contributors hurts wikipedia as a whole while Amazon.com profits from our collective work.

Here's an article discussing what Amazon is doing: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13577_3-20024297-36.html
Hers's what the Amazonized wikipedia pages look like: http://www.amazon.com/wiki/International_Space_Station/ref=wp_la_5
And this is Google's current policy on rating of sites that duplicate information: http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=66359

The items in the list of section 3e start off with ii and go to iv. The original Creative Commons document has items i to iii. I see this with Chromium and Iceweasel, and it appears to be because of a spurious <li> tag. It would be great if this could be fixed. Bk2204 (talk) 22:11, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

I noticed a small typo under section 4c. It says Ssection somewhere in there which is an obvious typo that needs to be changed to section.

The use of the calender denotation of BCE is of one very specific religeon, and changes the agreed upon, commonly accepted history of mankind that Christ did indeed live.!-- End request --> 76.112.37.69 (talk) 16:56, 19 May 2011 (UTC)
