TOS 7a:

1. *Text to which you hold the copyright:* When you submit text to which
you hold the copyright, you agree to license it under:
- Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License(“CC BY-SA”), and
- GNU Free Documentation License(“GFDL”) (unversioned, with no invariant sections, front-cover texts, or
back-cover texts).

(Re-users may comply with either license or both.)

The only exception is if the Project edition or feature requires a
different license. In that case, you agree to license any text you
contribute under that particular license. For example, at the publication
of this version of the Terms of Use, English Wikinews mandates that all
text content is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 Generic
License (CC BY 2.5) and does not require a dual license with GFDL.
Please note that these licenses do allow commercial uses of your
contributions, as long as such uses are compliant with the terms.

TOS 7d:

> *No revocation of license:* Except as consistent with your license, you
> agree that you will not unilaterally revoke or seek invalidation of any
> license that you have granted under these Terms of Use for text content or
> non-text media contributed to the Wikimedia Projects or features, even if

This is, in effect, necessary to make wikis work, so it makes sense to not
have this as a bad thing.
