Talk:Hal Leonard Corporation
This page seems to be hardly more than an ad for Hal Leonard Co, especially the "Where to buy" section. I suggest you stubify this article. Frosty 01:19, 27 June 2006 (UTC)
I would agree that they page needs some heavy editing. I own and use many of Hal Leonard Easy Play books. They are very popular in our organ club . Perhaps the article should be rewritten to make it more informative and useful and more enccyclopedic. --Phil talk 15:29, 25 July 2006 (UTC)
I blanked the 'Sales' and 'Where to Buy' sections. The rest of the article needs help, though. ObtuseAngle 15:02, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
This whole thing has to go. It's all lifted directly from either the Hal Leonard website or SEC filings. Word for word, as far as I can tell (though I just sampled four or five sentences.) What do we do with things like this? Delete it and start over? --jpgordon∇∆∇∆ 03:58, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
This article once again reads like an advertisement/PR release. A stub would probably be better than this stuff. Thinking of reverting to this version. Thoughts, anyone? RandyKaelber (talk) 02:06, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Most of the page is a word-for-word copyright violation of: http://www.halleonard.com/about_main.jsp, as edited by user... HalLeonard. I reworked page to avoid copyright violation.
HalLeonard, you need to read WP:CONFLICT. The comments above give you a good idea some of the article's deficiencies as a Wikipedia encyclopedia entry. Regards, Piano non troppo (talk) 22:34, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
A potential source, but I could not figure out how to bring the content to encyclopedic format.
