We’ve always intended Wikipages’ content to be distributed under a Free license, and spent some time looking at various options, including GFDL and the family of Creative Commons licenses. We wanted to make sure that information on Wikipages would be compatible with content from other similar sites (like Wikitravel and the Wikipedia), but unfortunately their licenses are slightly incompatible with each other.
Wikitravel’s copyright page made a strong case for the use of the CC-BY-SA license (Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike), and that is what we have selected for Wikipages as well. (See their carefully thought-out argument here.)
So today, I’m simply formalizing what has been our intent all along. Wikipages content is licensed under the CC-BY-SA version 3.0. We’ll flesh this page out with more detail over time, but for now we are just very pleased to be a new member of the Creative Commons family!
