I _suspect_ that you meant to link to /Licensing.  I'll note
the license of the content on Wikia is CC-BY-SA, which does
somewhat limit "bad" things that anyone can do with what we write 
and aligns fairly nicely with RT's licensing.

It's Best Practical's intent to pay wikia the small amount of
money they ask for to turn off ads on the wiki.
