Chapters Committee/Resolutions/Recission of Wikimedia Brasil recognition - May 2009/bn
Taking note of its Resolution of September 2008 concerning the Approval as Wikimedia Chapter of Wikimedia Brasil and the ensuing Board of Trustees Resolution implementing said Resolution
Referring to the Requirements for future chapters which state that "The chapter must have a legal structure/corporation that is legally independent from the Wikimedia Foundation." as well as the Guidelines for future chapters, which outline in greater detail the form of the legal structure every chapter is supposed to create
Taking note that the preparation team of Wikimedia Brasil has not formed a legal entity and has stated that it does not plan to do so
Taking note that the team of Wikimedia Brasil has thus not been able to sign a Chapters Agreement
hereby recommends to the Board of Trustees
- That the recognition as official chapter of Wikimedia Brasil is rescinded
- That the interim permission to use Wikimedia trademarks pending signature of a Chapters Agreement be revoked.
