Wikimedia and Internet Brands end their legal wrangling, but can Wikivoyage become relevant?
There hasn’t been a successful Wikpedia of travel. Wikivoyage should take advantage of major innovation to tackle the underlying problems.
On February 15, Wikimedia Foundation announced the settlement of litigation between itself and Internet Brands.
The news means smooth sailing ahead for new wiki-based travel site Wikivoyage — which officially launched in January.
It also means a loss for Internet Brands, which had attempted to build a commercial business on the back of user-generated, Creative Commons-licensed travel content with an ad-supported website, Wikitravel.
