Wikipedia Publishing CC Metadata

Mike Linksvayer, June 30th, 2004

Wikipedia now publishes license metadata, using the Creative Commons license metadata vocabulary to describe the GNU FDL license.



Browsing Wikipedia with mozCC installed.

MediaWiki, the software that runs Wikipedia, now has support for CC metadata built in. WikiTravel, a CC-licensed world travel guide also already uses this capability.

Many thanks to Brion Vibber and
Evan Prodromou for adding CC metadata support to this important software.
