Wikipedia went through a similar issue a few years back contacted
every single publisher to Wikipedia and ask them to click through a
contract that assigned their text through Creative Commons. I don't
know what happened to content that was anonymous, or where the author
failed to sign the agreement. They changed their user agreement around
that time so that everyone by default was contributing through
Creative Commons.

Maybe there is a useful precedent there.
