Materials marked as "used with permission" may not be used unless the user seeks independent permission from the copyright owner. The SEBoK is like Wikipedia in its most fundamental structure, as it is a collection of electronic articles built on MediaWiki technology. By contrast, Wikipedia is a much more open wiki, allowing virtually anyone to change any article while reserving the right to undo changes that are offensive or otherwise violate Wikipedia's rules.
Tight control over SEBoK content is a trade-off. Curation ensures a stable baseline whose quality and integrity are assured by its editors. Volunteer authors from the worldwide SE community continue to propose and create new content and other volunteers review that new content.
