Copyvio?[edit]

A large portion of the content, beginning with this edit appears to be copied from here]. --Ronz (talk) 16:33, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Considering the nature of that account, I thought that was a pretty likely. However, the material appears to have evolved here over time and was then later copied to the document you linked to. Consider this edit which changes "three" to "four"; the other document keeps the "four" and even incorporates the next section title as a "five". It also has a version date of October 2010, and material first appeared here in June. Kuru (talk) 02:35, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
Good catch.
The copyright for the pdf is 2009-2010, while the first edit to incorporate the material is Jun 2010 as indicated in the diff above. Maybe what we have is the author working here as an editor, updating both simultaneously? I'm not sure how to proceed. --Ronz (talk) 15:57, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

The article in Supply Chain Asia was created on 28/10/10 (check the date on their site). The Wikipedia text and diagram was created in June 2010 and earlier. It would appear from these dates that Supply Chain Asia copied from Wikipedia, not the other way round. What do you advise to correct this situation? 212.139.204.190 (talk) 16:17, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

That is the 1.0 version of the document. If revisions prior to 1.0 were made in 2009 as indicated in their copyright notice, then the information may have been copied from there to here. They claim copyright to the material. --Ronz (talk) 17:36, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

As a contributor to this Wiki I can confirm that Supply Chain Asia did not obtain any material from me and I think they must have copied Section 2 of their document DM100 from Wikipedia. What do you advise? Idea Farm (talk) 16:54, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for joining the discussion. Where did you get the material? That was a huge first-ever edit you made adding it, already formatted for use in Wikipedia, but with section numbering that suggest it came from other materials, though perhaps your own. --Ronz (talk) 17:44, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
The material was written specially by me for Wikipedia - it's based on my extensive reading in this area and is referenced to attributable sources. I'm a great believer in Wikipedia and frankly would rather put material into the public domain via Wiki than commercial press. I was pretty surprised when I saw that stuff published by Supply Chain Asia, not least the lack of attribution or sourcing. I do it under the nom de plume Idea Farm as I'm not too bothered by personal publicity, although this incident with SCA was made me think more about IP. Idea Farm (talk) 10:30, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
Thanks very much for clarifying. Sorry your work has been plagiarized so.
I'll remove the copyvio tag based upon the discussion above. --Ronz (talk) 16:10, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
I agree on the backwardscopy as well. They took text from Demand chain management as well which was inserted a year earlier than this article and by a different editor.--NortyNort (Holla) 10:42, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
