Wikipedia Says It Wasn’t Warned About YouTube Integration To Combat Conspiracies

The Wikimedia Foundation, the nonprofit that operates Wikipedia, tweeted in a statement yesterday that, despite the lack of warning, “We are always happy to see people, companies, and organizations recognize Wikipedia’s value as a repository of free knowledge.” The site also noted that YouTube wasn’t obligated to warn Wikipedia about the integration given that its content is “freely licensed for reuse by anyone.” – Geoff Weiss, Tubefilter
