Wikisource in action

As recently announced by Board chair Florence, the Wikimedia Foundation recently won a court case in France which confirmed the belief that they are a “hosting provider” and “can not be held accountable for the content added by contributors to the encyclopedia”. This was naturally a great relief.

Something cool: a translation of the court’s finding is now available on English Wikisource, by the catchy title Order of relief, Mrs M. B., Mr P. T., Mr F. D. vs. Wikimedia Foundation Inc..

In case you know some French, you can even read them side by side (well, more or less).

Thanks to John Vandenberg for the tip, at the 8th Melbourne Wikimedia meetup.
