I am new to this wiki and i would like to know about the policy differences between wikiquote and wikipedia. Please respond to my or your talk page. thanks :)--Alextheman 00:27, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Both projects must adhere to the fundamental policies established by Wikimedia Foundation, but as we are a much smaller project there has not yet been a need for such things as committees and such. The quotes here that are not in the public domain are presented under Fair use provisions of US copyright law, and thus cannot be overly extensive, especially from such things as modern song lyrics. Wikipedia also permits fair use images, but to avoid complications the English Wikiquote has disabled the uploading of such images, and we use only public domain and free-use images available at the Wikimedia Commons. That is a very brief summary of the situation. ~ Kalki 02:02, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
