Estonian Wikipedia is suing the government because of changed rules that deny Wikipedia tax exemption status as a non-governmental, philanthropic organization.
"A few years ago, the Tax Board changed its way of selecting charities for the tax exemption list," said Raul Veede, a board member of Wikimedia Eesti, a Wikipedia-related NGO. "The text [of the law] remains the same, but the interpretation of it changed."
"There has to be rich and accessible information, and that's why we need knowledge disseminated free of charge to everyone," said Veede. "Fortunately, the information is there, so that it can be distributed endlessly. Both city millionaires and village poor have equal access."
