Global Vision Publishing House (publisher)[edit]

Global Vision Publishing House
URL http://www.globalvisionpub.com/AllBooks.aspx
Sample See the discussion at the Reliable Sources noticeboard: some (not all) books copy from Wikipedia. Do not presume that any book from this publishing house is a reliable source; do not link to copyvio.
Rating Zero. Listed as © Publisher; Wikipedia and the GFDL do not seem to be mentioned. Some books copy from other sources, both online and printed, and do not appear to acknowledge those either. Many books have a more encyclopædia-like structure, with a series of many articles / short sections rather than one big body of prose; different articles/sections in the books sometimes appear to borrow from different sources. In one case an obvious grammatical error in the source text appears to have been copied verbatim.
Details Various Global Vision books have raised concerns of copyvio on wikipedia articles, but in each case the article text predates the date the book was published.
Copied from other (non-wikipedia) sources
  • "Spiritual Value of Social Charity", in which the first visible page of text - apparently written by the publisher themselves - is a direct copy of "History and philosophy of social work in India" (published by somebody else, decades earlier).
  • A randomly chosen sentence from "Encyclopedic Dictionary of Sanskrit Literature" also appears in a 1996 book from a different source: [1]
  • "Nuclear weapons and national security: emerging challenges for Asia" copies extensively from [2]
  • A randomly chosen sentence from "21st Century India : View and Vision " also appears in a 2003 book from a different source: [3]
  • The first sentences of "Rāvaṇa and Laṅkā", [4] nominally written by R.K. Ramakrishnan, is copied from "India in the Rāmāyaṇa age: a study of the social and cultural conditions in ancient India as described in Vālmīki's Rāmāyaṇa", published 1967 [5]
  • "Basics of guidance and counselling" appears to copy from a 1984 book by a different Indian publisher which in turn copies from the 1965 "Testing for Teachers".
  • "Role models in management (leadership and communication)" copies from "Effective Leadership" by Adair

greatsite.com[edit]

  • Site: greatsite.com
  • No mention of wikipedia
  • No mention of GFDL
  • Claims to own copyright
  • Doesn't seem clear to me. If there's copying from the Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia, they probably both borrowed from the CCEL.org version; I caught this (and credited the source) in the Philipp Melanchthon article. Joelwest 01:54, 1 Dec 2003 (UTC)
    • It seems clear to everyone else but you. The only theory that you have offered is that both numerous (probably in the double digits) _different_ wikipedia editors and the creators of greatsite.com misappropriated material from a mysterious third source. I'd like to know what this third source is. Take the example that I named above. The edit adds a paraph starting "Besides translating the Bible, Tyndale also held and published views which were considered heretical, ...". Now do you honestly claim that a wikipedia user and the creators of greatsite.com both found the same paragraph somewhere and copied it? Do a google search for this first sentence: [6] - you'll see that the only websites that contain this material have taken it from wikipedia. (Funny enough the wikipedia page is not listed there.) I don't see how it could be more clear that they took the material for the Tyndale article as well as others from us. Please give some valid arguments besides saying that it is not clear to you. --snoyes 19:10, 1 Dec 2003 (UTC)

Greatsite discussion[edit]

Similarities with Wikipedia's Martin Luther passage:
  • [7] appearts to be based on Martin Luther. If you look at the history of our article (for example, the creation of the second paragraph of the "Exile at the Wartburg Castle" section in [8]), it seems to have been built up piece-by-piece, so I think it's pretty clear that they've copied us rather than the other way round. Camembert
  • Sent the standard letter. --snoyes 02:49, 30 Nov 2003 (UTC)
  • As the one who started this whole thread, I believe the evidence is more consistent with either Wikipedia copying this site or both copying a third source (hopefully public domain). The problem was introduced in the 18:18, 01 July 2003 revision; see the new sections "struggle to find peace with God", "Warburg Castle" and "Luther's writings" which are almost verbatim quotes. It is quite possible both were taken from a 3rd source (since it reads like the work of a scholar or theologian) but google did not find it. GreatSite.com lists a specific author with its copyright, and is willing to let the work be reproduced with credit (scroll to bottom). Joelwest 01:54, 1 Dec 2003 (UTC)
    • But much of the content we had before that July 1 edit is included in the greatsite version as well. For example, compare the beginning of greatsite's "Martin Luther and Judaism" section with the penultimate paragraph of this Wikipedia version of January 7, 2002. They are nearly the same. So if the Wikipedia version has been copied from another source (either greatsite itself or a shared third-party publication), then it's been copied in bits and pieces by many different people in many edits over the course of two years. That seems unlikely, to put it mildly. More likely, greatsite has copied a Wikipedia version and edited it a bit. Don't underestimate the ability of Wikipedia contributors to write like scholars or theologians - some of them are. --Camembert
  • I have ruled out the Schaff-Herzog Encyclopediaand the Catholic Encyclopedia as the source of both articles; see the Luther stories at CCEL.org. Joelwest 01:58, 1 Dec 2003 (UTC)
  • Possible GFDL violation by greatsites. The 05:51, 9 Aug 2003 Melanchthon correction is present there. The 00:45, 30 Sep 2003 Pope Leo III to X correction isn't, so the copying seems to have happened between those two dates. The remaining edits between those dates don't help to narrow it down further. Lots of other corrections and edits prior to 9 Aug are at greatsites, so I conclude that it almost had to have been after that 9 Aug edit. In more detail: greatsites.com appears not to have had much coverage of Martin Luther on 2003-02-06 [9]. Regrettably there is no more recent archived copy of that site to compare with. The Luther's German Bible section is present and that was added at 20:26, 25 Jun 2003 so the copying seems to have happened after then. There's an extra sentence in the copy which doesn't seem to have ever been present in a copy of ours and the 1922 date differs from ours as well. Luther's early life was expanded at 17:47, 5 Jul 2003, including a mention of a copper mine starting from this 17:47, 5 Jul 2003 edit so the copying happened after this edit. this 14:17, 6 Jul 2003 edit changes text from "a few days later" to "the next day" and greatsites has that change. The changes in the 21:02, 8 Jul 2003 edit at the start of this examination are present. Until this 15:04, 11 Jul 2003 edit our text contained "From the viewpoint of the Roman Catholic Church". The greatsites version doesn't contain that, suggesting that the copying happened after this edit. Until this 18:34, 11 Jul 2003 edit our text contained "called to testify". The edit changed it to "summoned to either renounce or reaffirm them" and greatsites contains this change. The edits of 19:43, 11 Jul 2003 are present at greatsites. The Eck change of 21:47, 11 Jul 2003 is present at greatsites. The 18:28, 30 Jul 2003 near to nearby change suggests copying after this edit. The first of the 18:39, 30 Jul 2003 edits is present. The 07:31, 31 Jul 2003 changes are present, so it was after this. The 05:51, 9 Aug 2003 Melanchthon correction is present. Jamesday 10:39, 1 Dec 2003 (UTC)
Here is a second example of similar text between Greatsite.com and Wikipedia:
  • Their Tyndale article has wording in it that was made to the old encyclopedia article on wikipedia by an anon user: [10]. Again it should be clear that they copied from us and not the other way arround. --snoyes 06:33, 30 Nov 2003 (UTC)

Not a verbatim copy: embedding failure - they've inserted additional content (eg, Wikipedia logo, Wikipedia search box, link to Wikipedia front page) between the title and the start of the article. It is absolutely crazy that this should require them to follow the more complex regulations for derivative works, but this seems to be the case.
We could aid Scotiishlaw.org, and others in similar situations, by providing vastly more customisable skins. In this case, Wikipedia would be the publisher, and Scottishlaw could take a verbatim copy from Wikipedia. Hmm.

Indopedia began as a copy of Wikipedia as of December 2004. Since then some of this Wikipedia content has been modified by Indopedia editors, and 448 new articles have been added on Indological subjects.

Partial editing of Wikipedia content has produced false and misleading content.

  • For example, Project:About says falsely, "Indopedia is a trademark of the Wikimedia Foundation, Inc."
  • And Project:How to edit a page says "Indopedia is a WikiWiki, which means that anyone can easily edit any unprotected article and have those changes posted immediately to that page." In fact one must be logged in to edit Indopedia, and registration is restricted. Perhaps this is why (as of July 2008) there are no Special:Recentchanges, and there are no Special:Newpages since December 2007. —teb728 t c 23:40, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Also some of the British commander's names also get translated - Rear Admiral A.L. Duff of HMS Superb becomes zadního admirála. L. Bezcenn˘ of HMS Nádhern˘, while if my reading of Czech grammar is correct Vice Admiral Sir Cecil Burney gets a sex change as zlozvyku-sir admirála Cecil Burneyová! :) -- Arwel 00:04, 15 Jun 2004 (UTC)

The little line "Copyright Wikipedia Contributors", without link, is in fact the only thing about Wikipedia that can be found on the page.
  • Furthermore, something very nasty is going on: for links that do not exist on infopedia, a utility called webgrap is used to try to rip the info directly from Wikipedia, thus loading the Wikipedia servers. See for ex. Oncology and try the link to Adjunctive therapies in the article (it has a question mark behind it to indicate that the article doesn't exist on Infopedia). The operation does not succeed, but the Wikipedia servers are queried nevertheless; so this is a case of straight bandwidth theft. - Mark Dingemanse (talk) 07:10, 19 Oct 2004 (UTC)

If they can tidy up their act a bit, this could become a good demonstration of what FSF licensing is all about. Now if only those folks could release infowrangler under the GPL ;-). Kim Bruning 12:18, 18 Jun 2004 (UTC)
    • This site does not clarify that its material is a copy of the original source. Perhaps the owners thought that by including all Wikipedia namespace articles etc. with information about the project, that would suffice to clear them of legal issues. They were mistaken: the GDFL specifically states in part 4 to: "Preserve... the network locations given in the Document for previous versions it was based on." This seems to be one of a multitude of policy breaches. Perhaps more importantly, usage of the Wikipedia name and logo (even a retired version) in this way is to be seriously discouraged as it leads to problems with retaining trademark rights.

ipedia.com[edit]

iqexpand.com[edit]

  • Site: iqexpand.com
  • Note: how you access articles is by replacing www.iqexpand.com with the name of the article you are looking for i.e. for Linux, you would put in http://linux.iqexpand.com, and for Wikipedia, you would type in http://wikipedia.iqexpand.com/ (but in this case they're REAL sneaky, replacing Wikipedia with I.Q. Expand in the entry but forgetting to change the bottom links)
  • No GFDL notice. Claims copyright over the site.
  • Broken images everywhere on every article.
  • Absolutely no reference to Wikipedia, instead refering to the "English Information Megasite" for about information for iqexpand.com, thereby dodging reference to Wikipedia. The English Information Megasite is but of course nothing more than a cheaply done mirror of Wikipedia (check out the front page here: the front page says Wikipedia, and has tons of broken links to news, featured article of the day, etc.)

  • Site: http://iqnaut.net
