It is not Knol who is "stealing" from Wikipedia contributors. It is people
who upload to Knol who do this.. Once people are aware that you can not copy
content from Wikipedia to Knol, you may find that the tables are turned
because you CAN copy content to Wikipedia...
Please do not paint Knol in a negative light, it does not deserve this.
Again, people who copy to Knol are wrong, that is no problem of the license
selected for this project,
