Re: New Feature: AikiWeb AikiWiki!

Hi Mike,

Yes, I think it would be necessary to obtain explicit permission (eg in writing) from the copyright holders to place their information into the AikiWiki. Also, there's the implication that the information would then be placed under the Creative Commons License that may not be what the copyright holders would like.

However, here's an idea. If people can think about it both in terms of usefulness and also legality, I'd appreciate it. Maybe we could paraphrase (ie put into our own words) these stories and put them into the AikiWiki with attribution to where the original story may be found? So, for example, we can talk about the founder's "bullet-dodging" story and reference the publications (eg Gozo Shioda, Aikido Jinsei, first edition, page xxx)?

Maybe we can create another link off of the General section of the AikiWiki for "Anecdotes about the founder"?
