Baike.com

Baike.com (formerly Hudong) is a for-profit social network in China, including the world’s largest Chinese encyclopedia/news website, but not free for re-use. It is China’s largest wiki site, using paid advertising, with over 5 million articles and more than 2.5 million volunteers, as of February 2011. However, Baike.com is a news/neologism encyclopedia, and hence, it does not restrict articles to only long-term, sourced text with balanced point-of-view content. The contributors agree to release their writings with perpetual royalty-free license to publish their content, but it is not free for re-use on other websites.
