What has THAT to do with POV

WiktionaryZ is a wiki project under development. We want all words of all languages, we want the words of all domains and, we want to collaborate with organizations both companies, universities, NGO's and governmental organizations.

This was easy.. WiktionaryZ is very much a Free/Open project. The software is Open Source, the content is available under a Free license.. Free is very much how we define ourselves. Now when Sabine finds us a resource like this one, we have an important body of computer terminology really rich in it's multilingual content. Consider; 14.000 terms in some 45 languages makes it really important. Given the information about the license we could use it.

Typically we would upload it using the name of the organization responsible for the content.. I think we should, then again some might find this problematic.

Gerard, I'm not sure if we can use it. http://www.microsoft.com/info/cpyright.mspx#EEB that is linked from the download page http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=25018024-2DFD-4229-9763-05F78FEAF2FF&displaylang=en for the file states: "Unless otherwise specified, the Services are for your personal and non-commercial use.

Did I miss an "otherwise specified" in relation to there terms?
