Germany: Newspaper starts wiki

The German business daily Handelsblatt started a business wiki as additional service to its readers. WirtschaftsWiki.de is planned to become an online encyclopaedia for business terms where everybody can contribute. Handelsblatt's online newsroom is in charge of the project and will control the quality of entries, making sure that entries do not violate personality rights or copyright or that the wiki is not misused to advertise products or extreme political positions.

In a further step, business terms that are often used in the newspaper will be linked to the corresponding wiki entry. Also ads could appear on the wiki site in a later stage, for the beginning there are none.
