Hello all, 

Today we opened a discussion asking for community input on a proposed change to the Wikimedia Terms of Use to upgrade to Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license. The new license is easier to read and more internationally friendly, so we hope it will ensure that people can easily and freely share or remix Wikimedia content. The amendment to our Terms of Use is currently available in German, French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, and we welcome further translations and discussion in any language.

For your review, you may find the proposed amendment and background information here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Terms_of_use/Creative_Commons_4.0/Legal_note

Please join the discussion on the talk page: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Terms_of_use/Creative_Commons_4.0 

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and comments.
