  6. The text of Nintendo Wiki is copyrighted (automatically, under the [[wikipedia:Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works|Berne Convention]]) by Nintendo Wiki editors and contributors and is formally licensed to the public under one or several liberal licenses. Nintendo Wiki's text and many of its images are co-licensed under the [[wikipedia:Wikipedia:Text of Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License|Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike 3.0 Unported License]] (CC-BY-SA), and in some cases, the [[wikipedia:Wikipedia:Text of the GNU Free Documentation License|GNU Free Documentation License]] (GFDL) (unversioned, with no invariant sections, front-cover texts, or back-cover texts). Some text has been imported only under CC-BY-SA and CC-BY-SA-compatible license and cannot be reused under GFDL; such text will be identified either on the page footer, in the page history or the discussion page of the article that utilizes the text. Every image has a description page which indicates the license under which it is released or, if it is non-free, the rationale under which it is used.

  8. The licenses Nintendo Wiki uses grant free access to our content in the same sense that free software is licensed freely. Nintendo Wiki content can be copied, modified, and redistributed ''if and only if'' the copied version is made available on the same terms to others and acknowledgment of the authors of the Nintendo Wiki article used is included (a link back to the article is generally thought to satisfy the attribution requirement; see below for more details). Copied Nintendo Wiki content will therefore remain ''free'' under appropriate license and can continue to be used by anyone subject to certain restrictions, most of which aim to ensure that freedom. This principle is known as '''[[wikipedia:copyleft|copyleft]]''' in contrast to typical copyright licenses.
