CopyrightTalk

It is very important that everyone working on Wikipedia respect copyrights.  Since this is a wide-open project with no editorial oversight, this sort of thing will certainly happen again.

In our role as a provider of internet services, we have a fairly strong defense under the DigitalMilleniumCopyrightAct, and a fairly strong responsibility.  We can't be held financially liable for other people's actions, so long as we follow a reasonable take-down policy.

Nonetheless, I can tell you that my charitable instincts and love of knowledge will hit the wall if someone sues me.  :-(
