Maybe we should. But I like the idea of CC-Wiki... but then again due to current fact that we would have to change all current public domain pages to include a notice that they're public domain.

allows us to freely distribute our content, and we are covered legally
as long as we acknowledge when we use fair use or other copyrighted
work (government public domain documents do it all the time).   I
think the licensing mixups about the other language editions could be
related to the fact that when a new MediaWiki is set up, it
automatically defaults to GNU-FDL.  So, in summary: I think we should
keep Wikinews in the public domain.
