Actually, all Wikipedia articles have a Cite this page link. E.g. for
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HADOPI_law, the Cite this page link is
which gives you the exact wording for the reference according to
various conventions (APA, MLA etc) under "Citation styles for "HADOPI
law ". You can just copy-paste the one you prefer. So let's say you
use the APA one (but the same obtains for all). Presently it says:
"HADOPI law. (2010, January 6). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia.
Retrieved 10:48, January 13, 2010, from
i.e. the link takes readers to the version you consulted, from which,
in one click, they can access the whole history of the page, which
also indicates all the people who contributed to the page. That's
considered as satisfactory attribution.

I don't quite understand what you mean by "pool license". But other
collaborative sites have a solution similar to the Wikipedia one
mentioned above. For instance, when a video is posted for
captioning/subtitling at DotSUB.com, there is a link where the names
of all the people who contributed to all subtitles in all languages
are given. And vice-versa, when someone decides to collaborate to
such a site, s/he accepts that his/her name will be indirectly
available through the attribution reference.
