In the last few news reports , the "copyright free" phrase is
repeating. This is worrying.
I think we should try to correct the reporters or try to give an
explanation about the
copyright of wiki project content. All the content in wiki projects are not
"copyright free", but uses a permissive copyright or copyleft as its
is popularly known.

I think Wiki Activists also need this sensitizations to communicate
licensing well to reporters & public.
