Heavy concerns about the licencing policy

I'd suggest to change the licence under which the content is published. A licence that allows no derivative works is a contradiction in itself when used for a wiki. It actually means, that every entry, once it's created, is not allowed to be changed by anyone except for the author. So every contribution by any user must remain untouched under the licence you've chosen. This means, that using this website as a wiki is illegal, because you are infringing the rights of the other users when you edit their contributions.

What would be the advantage of chosing a nd-licence anyway? To keep the content on your site? To prevent a fork to occur? I think, it merely hinders the creative process and the distribution of information. Why shouldn't one be allowed to compile data from this site in a nice pdf-file? Why shouldn't one be allowed to record example-sentences or make a podcast under a at-nc-licence? There are so many useful ways to use the information of the korean wiki project, why would one want to cross these possibilites out? Futureboy 03:16, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
