Title: Television in Wikipedia - Internationalization of Wiki Loves Broadcast
Speaker: Jan-David Franke, Kevin Golde
Abstract: More and more educational clips from German public broadcasters are making their way into Wikipedia, improving hundreds of articles and raking in millions of views. In this roundtable, Wikipedians (“Wiki Loves Broadcast”) and Wikimedia Deutschland discuss how they made this happen and how the international Wikipedia community can follow suit.

Educational content from public broadcasters should be permanently available online under a free license like CC BY-SA 4.0. It is all of us who fund this content through our license fees or taxes, so we should all be allowed to freely use it. This helps fulfill the mission of the broadcasters, aids teachers and students, and benefits Wikipedia. The German-speaking Wikipedia community (“Wiki Loves Broadcast”) and Wikimedia Deutschland have been working to make this a reality for over five years. Now we want to internationalize the project and help other Wikipedia communities to establish similar undertakings.

After all, the German Wiki Loves Broadcast project has been very successfully advocating for freely licensed educational content by public service broadcasters. In consequence, public broadcasters in Germany are blazing the trail on the usage of Creative Commons licensing. Once uploaded to Wikimedia Commons and integrated into relevant articles, these video clips - on subjects like the construction of the Taj Mahal, the US voting system or the ancient city of Angkor Wat - have improved hundreds of articles and rake in millions of monthly views on Wikipedia. This success story deserves to be shared and replicated.

In this session, we therefore want to introduce the project, motivate people to adapt it in their country, and answer questions about how to start Wiki Loves Broadcast, ranging from the organizational setup and the affiliation to national Wikimedia chapters to arguments needed to convince politicians and public broadcasters of the value of Creative Commons licensing. In doing so, we ultimately want to lay the foundation for an international Wiki Loves Broadcast network.
