Dear Edi

Did you read the whole article? I did not talk about Facebook. As far
as I understood your example Facebook is using Wikipedia Content on
their platform to make it more attractive and get more money. I did
not know that, but  this doesn't change that the statement is wrong.
Wikimedia is a non-profit foundation (1) and not a for profit
organization. Wikimedia is about making knowledge available. The quote
however says that Wikimedia is a for profit organization and the same
as google or facebook.

Best
Daniel
