my little POV,
What's the role of Wikinews vs Wikipedia ?
For me Wikinews MAIN role is to REPORT news, linked to Commons and Wikipedia content but also to facts, reality, now and today.
the WIkipedia MAIN role is to built an UNBURNABLE library of knowledge available for all (yes, i am one of the rare people still crying for Alexandria library burning to ground)
*To write encyclopedia you need to know the status of the knowledge you fetch, it's the Copyright (Author Rights, ...) in order to write an entry.
*To report news we need all the privileges and responsabilities of RR (Real Reality) journalists.
Ans it's just named Press Freedom !
It's named Fair Use and 1st Amendment in the USA, but this law concerned JUST USA, remember that.
Wikinewsies, WikiJournalist, Wikireporter (choose the one you like) would able to QUOTE otherwise Wikinews is Non Sense !!!
Am i right ?

I'm still not 100% on decoding licensing. What are the terms of the
University of Michigan's license (see blow)? Does this mean a
Wikinewsie cannot directly quote anything in their study?
