As required per the conflict of interest policy of the Wikimedia
Foundation, I am hereby posting the pledge of personal commitment to
foundation-l and wikimediafoundation.org:



As a member of the board of trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation, I,
Erik Möller, am committed to Wikimedia Foundation's goal to establish
and maintain the highest level of public confidence in its
accountability. I have personally committed to follow the standards
set out below, which represent the Wikimedia Foundation's conflict of
interest policies:

I will conduct my activities with the board of trustees of Wikimedia
Foundation so that I do not advance or protect my own interests, or
the private interests of others with whom I have a relationship, in a
way that is detrimental to the interests of, or to the fundamental
mission of, Wikimedia Foundation.

In every instance in which I represent the Wikimedia Foundation, I
will conduct my activities in a manner to best promote the interests
of Wikimedia Foundation.

In all matters that come before the board of trustees for a vote that
may favorably impact my own financial interests, or the private
interests of others with whom I have a financial relationship, or any
organization of which I am a part, I will reveal that relationship and
abstain from a vote in the matter.

When a conflict of interest arises, or when a potential conflict of
interest emerges, I will promptly disclose that conflict, or potential
conflict, to the Executive Director of Wikimedia Foundation and to the
Chairman of its board of trustees and seek a resolution of that issue.

Entered into on this the 11th day of October, 2006.

Erik Möller
Member, Board of Trustees
Wikimedia Foundation, Inc.
