Liability[edit source]

Re:

If I post something and it turns out to be wrong does that mean someone could sue me?

Does the license have an impact on liability? Wikipedia has avoided libel actions in large part due to its swift and thorough response when libelous material is found. Its policy on living person biographies is quite strict, and emphasizes removing unsourced, potentially libellous material.

A for information which may be harmful, I think we need a prominent disclaimer. One of our board members (Joel Scott) is an attorney, so I'll ask him. --Chriswaterguy 03:10, 18 May 2011 (PDT)
