Hi all. In creating my wiki I chose the Copyleft/GPL license.
However, I am finding that some of my sources will allow me
to use web graphics and text for educational purposes, but
will not allow the **redistribution** of them. So I don't think I should
be using the Copyleft/GPL license.
I have not "opened up" my wiki to collaborators yet, so I'm the
only author/editor. Hopefully this means that changing licenses
at this point is not a great problem.
Can anybody suggest what license they think I should be using
and tell me how to change my license "midstream"?
Many thanks (in advance)
You can license your own stuff however you like. You could for example say
everything is under the GFDL, except for when there is a license statement
in the article (you can put it in one of the MediaWiki messages that appear
when you edit).
For all those non-GFDL, you put a notice in the article.
