Legal infrastructure: Wikipedia slogan is “The Free Encyclopedia”, where “free” has the same meaning as in “free software”—it is an encyclopedia whose content is licensed for free or open-source distribution with copyleft, meaning that anyone is legally authorized to reuse its content (including for commercial purposes), as long as they make their derivatives available under the same sharing license terms. This legal infrastructure is a critical aspect of what has enabled the growth and survival of Wikipedia, and a number of studies investigate this aspect.
