Actually, in Norway, I got a limited right to copy it, a given right
to modify it, a limited right to distribute it, and a limited right to

And I find that these rights are sufficient for my use of the books.

Which I fail to understand, as the limited rights provided to me by
law should be sufficient for the wiki content in most cases.

Is it not like this where you are?
