Hello, I have no idea why you say I have infringed a copyright. The article submitted is from my own website http://shetlandsheep.atspace.com Please advise. Rarebreeds 17:11, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

The copyright violation notice is because the content you posted is identical to that on this site, which clearly states: Copyright © 1996, 1997, 1998. Oklahoma State University Board of Regents.

I have not deleted the article, but if the problem is not corrected very quickly, another administrator will do so. Pastordavid 18:15, 16 May 2007 (UTC)


Hello again and thank you for your prompt reply. I will alter the article as you wish - I should have the alterations completed by 9pm GMT if you want to check again. However, I would point out that I did not copy the information from the website as you seem to suggest. My sources (and quite possibly the sources for the website) are as follows : British Sheep (The National Sheep Association 1992) The Wool Book (Margaret Dixon 1979) British Sheep and Wool (Wool Marketing Board 1990) The Rare Breeds Handbook (Derek Wallis 1986) Sheep and Man (M.L.Ryder 1983)

Also, I notice that you will not accept a link to the wool colour chart on my website. As it is difficult to describe colours well is there another way of letting readers see the chart?
