Psychoslave added a comment to T205197: Support insertion of Scribunto Lua modules using Visual Editor.

I think it's a good practice to put a template layer between the module API and the the article, it brings much flexibility. Not adding it in the VE default layout might actually be presented as a "feature not a bug". Not bothering article writers with too much technical complexity is great.

NOTE: Mapping Wikidata to other ontologies might have relevance at some point once we will have the instance running and populated. We are still far from that, but this is just to keep a trace for once it's done, as a possible further work for integration with the rest of Wikimedia infrastructure.

Maybe Extension:TextExtracts might help somewhat here, but at least from the documentation it doesn't appear to be usable through wikicode calls. A more invasive solution would be to use Extension:Labeled Section Transclusion which requires to explicitly mark each element that should be extractable.

based on the fact that we have ~42M “imported from” references and ~64M sitelinks in Wikidata

Hmm, I've added likely over 1000 of those "imported from" items myself by hand, for example for organization "official website" entries. So I would say "imported from" gives us an over-count of "bot" work, if that's the main issue here. Or is thousands of individuals adding these entries by hand also a concern?

As far as I understand copyright, if by a pure random event I happen to
write exactly one page of Harry Potter, I can’t publish this as easily as I
would want. The stuff is protected whatever the way it was created. So it
does not matter if we actually imported datas or it happens we
substancially have the same result by over means.

Psychoslave added a comment to T193728: Address concerns about perceived legal uncertainty of Wikidata .

In a way Wikipedia already has a "contribute-alike" agreement, it is just not explicit, but tacit. Users come to the site, access it as they wish, and they are asked to make a donation every once in a while. It is not a contribution in the same way as writing an article, but it is still a contribution which is also necessary to keep the project alive.

Psychoslave added a comment to T193728: Address concerns about perceived legal uncertainty of Wikidata .

If any of those happened (or had to happen), I’d be out here and I guess many other Wikidata editors would also discontinue their efforts. There is great support for CC0 in Wikidata, since anything else that required attribution would render it useless; large-scale purging would tear down so much content that we would basically have to start again from the beginning. We are 5.5 years into this project and many of us have spent thousands of hours of effort into it, based on the unchallenged assumption (by WMF) that Wikipedia imports as we are doing them are legally fine.

But even ignoring that, Wikidata does *not* store the same expression anyway. So what exactly is the copyright asserted on?

@Rspeer regarding the ontology: the ontology of Wikidata is genuinely unique and not copied from any Wikipedia project, or any other project. It has been created on Wikidata.

May 25 2018, 2:32 PM · WMF-Legal, Wikidata
Psychoslave added a comment to T193728: Address concerns about perceived legal uncertainty of Wikidata .

@Nemo_bis thanks, I agree with your point a lot.

But regarding your question - just because there is a database which happens to reproducible should not trigger any right issues.

To give an example: it is easy to imagine a company that sells the list of all countries and their capitals as a dataset that is easy to process and that has a guaranteed quality and support level, to other companies, under a proprietary license that does not allow the dataset to be reshared.

Now just because it happens that we can reproduce that list from Wikidata with a SPARQL query should not mean that we have to act in any way.

On the other side, if we had used that list to import the data - then that would in my understanding be a breach of the rights of that company. But if we did not and the result happens to be the same - well, that's how it is.

If the example is too simple, it could be easily extended to be larger and more substantial. My argument would still be the same.

What do you think?

Psychoslave added a comment to T193728: Address concerns about perceived legal uncertainty of Wikidata .

@Psychoslave sorry to disagree on the questions, but are we in any disagreement on these three questions?

We should not allow the (significant) import of data from databases which are licensed under a license incompatible with CC-0.
We should enforce that.
We should document the licenses of imported databases.
We should remove data that has been imported from databases which are licensed under a license incompatible with CC-0.

That would be my answers. I don't expect you to disagree with that.

The more I personnaly dig into this questions, the more issues are opened and the less clear it becomes that there is an actual issue, and if there is an actual issue if there is a legal risk. Or even if there is a moral or ethical issue: I think we will all agree here that pure facts can be used by anyone (beyond private life one).

Of all things I read about copyright law (IANAL but very interested), this is not what I have been told... in NL there is the provision that allows to replicate a database if the content is aggregated independently (the famous case is the Dutch phonebook which was manually copied in India; sorry cannot find an online description quickly).

Psychoslave added a comment to T193728: Address concerns about perceived legal uncertainty of Wikidata .

Do editors have rights over infobox data? Individual facts are not copyrightable; collections of infobox data could maybe be copyrighted if they were curated by an organization with a legal personality, or a well-defined group of authors, but that is not the case. "The Wikimedia community" is not a legal entity that could hold copyright or neighboring rights. Community curation seems to me like a legal black hole, a bit like the monkey selfie: there is an activity that is clearly protected by IP rights, but there is no one to assign those rights to, so in the end the work/data does end up in the public domain.

That's different from copying, say, map data from Google, in which case there is a well-defined legal entity which might or might not have sui generis database rights which Wikidata might or might not want to respect.

Then you refer to an email on a closed list that I cannot access in order to point out that there are some contributors who might or might not do that in the future. So it's not about things that have already be done? But you said that there already are contributors who have done it?

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Ivanhercaz/Tests seems perfect to me as far as the appearance goes, than you @Ivanhercaz we only need to add the functional part edit the page, possibly first checking if user is logged.

I think that before we launch that, it would be better to have a simple "support" blue button, that directly edit the page, without requiring to type any wikitext.

Well, that's a good point @Denny. I can point to a message on the Wikidata WMfr mailing list where @Karima clearly explain how some contributor envision that point and promote a //adventurous beyond legal attitude// regarding license issue. The terms of use of the list don't allow to share it (plus it's in French, obviously :P). But maybe @Karima will be OK to express again this point of view in the current ticket.

The second point is purely about writing some promotional, isn't it?

Ok. So far I thanked people who signed the support section on Meta through the Mediawiki "thank" feature.

I'm not sure to understand the exact feature exposed here.
