Public Domain licensing is the most liberal available.

If you can get all your stakeholders (from the owner of the site to the participants) to agree to place as much content as possible in the public domain, or to make public domain licensing the default for collaborative content, then you will enable the greatest possible reuse and remixing of your community's content, with the consequence being a giving up of control over how the content may be used or altered by others.

(Creative Commons has a public domain option.)
