Comment Isn't Wikipedia licensed under a CC licence? (Score 1) 370

So anyone can go ahead and make a "beautiful" version of Wikipedia, right?

What's that? Oh, the curious sound of crickets mixed with tumbleweed.

(But I do wish it was much easier to correct very minor mistakes, like typos, just by clicking on the text to make it editable, like the descriptions under [one's own] Flickr photos).

"Let me make the argument another way. Say your wife is sleeping with another man. Obviously, they are having an affair. However, you never agreed to such things, and never endorsed them. You can't sue for breach of contract, as that's not how marriage works. Such a thing is obviously wrong and unethical. Thus, there is a law intended to prevent such things."

A car analogy is also needed but I'll let someone else do that.
