Wikipedia is not an advertising platform[edit]

This is an advert not an encyclopedic article!

It's clear, this article is being used for marketing purposes only. Given the lackadaisical moderation of wikipedia, this has become all to common. Recommend this article is deleted-- and the many like it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.255.27.32 (talk) 19:33, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Not a copyright issue[edit]

The text that is flagged appears to have been added here a year before the device that is listed as the copyright violation was introduced. Thus - text was here first.

Indeed - doing a google date range search, it appears that the text was here first. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=%22Aldiko+is+an+e-book+reader+application+for+the+Android+operating+system.+It+supports+the+EPUB+industry+standard%22&hl=en&safe=off&sa=X&ei=GdDhUIFDi6rQBfvmgYgB&ved=0CCMQpwUoBg&source=lnt&tbs=cdr%3A1%2Ccd_min%3A1%2F1%2F2005%2Ccd_max%3A31%2F12%2F2009&tbm=

As such - this seems to indicate that this is not a copyright violation.

If this is not conclusive enough, then I'm happy to rewrite, but removing articles because vendors copy the text seems liek it could become a problem. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jtowler (talkcontribs) 17:52, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

The press release is dated 2010, and the text has been here since 2009, which indicates to me the infringement is going the other way. (Unless the press release was GFDL licensed, but I couldn't find any evidence of that). WilyD 09:18, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Contested deletion[edit]

This page should not be speedy deleted as an unambiguous copyright infringement, because the date on this article is earlier than the site - it is not evident that this was copied from there, rather than that copied from here. (I do think article could be better though) --Jtowler (talk) 09:17, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
