What is the copyright status of responses submitted to Yahoo! Answers? Can good info be moved to Wikipedia?
The copyright policy of Wikipedia is the GFDL:
...all you have to do is attribute the source of your information. The copyright policy for Yahoo! Answers points you to this page:
...that doesn't discuss who owns the answers. I assume Yahoo! doesn't considers themselves the owners (?)
I personally don't see why anyone who submitted to Yahoo! answers would object to Wikipedia incorporating their information. If they were willing to offer their answers altruistically to a site run by a corporation...and not get paid...you'd think they'd feel even better about seeing that on a non-profit site. Wikipedia also encourages attribution of sources so there'd likely be a link back to the answer here.
