Indian Rivers Inter-link[edit]

Hello, Regarding your edits to this page: they contain large chunks of text copied verbatim from the source material. Unless the source material was published under a free license (which I don't think is was, as the NWDA site states "All Rights Reserved"), then adding the material here is a copyright violation. Even citing it to the source as you did, does not give the right to use copyrighted text on Wikipedia. Ideally, you would compose text in your own words, using the source material as a reference for the concepts, but not the words themselves.

Please address this, else your additions may be deleted as copyright violations. Electric Wombat (talk) 19:47, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

I agree with Electric Wombat. I have combed through chunks of his or her addition, and rewritten to avoid WP:Copyvio. But I have not checked everything. The user @ is encouraged to check and comply with copyright violation policy of wikipedia. AmyNorth (talk) 02:56, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
