KnowledgeGeek[edit]

Knowledgegeek now looks close to compliance, acknowledging Wikipedia as the original source and linking to the GFDL. Do people agree that they are now largely compliant? --Robert Merkel 04:30, 11 Mar 2004 (UTC)
The site has definitely improved. However, witness all the 'summary' pages one level in from the root page (such as Coffee) still being composed largely of Wikipedia content without any acknowledgement. A sentence or two, lifted directly from Wikipedia is shown in many entries on those 'summary' pages (such as Drip brew, French press, Caffeine, etc. on the Coffee page above) yet you must click through to the full text before a Wikipedia or GFDL reference is made. A reference to Wikipedia and GFDL on all pages with even 'truncated' Wikipedia content (ie, the first few sentences of a bunch of articles) would still seem to be required. Potentially also worth mentioning is that the engine or template system used by KnowledgeGeek is used by StudioReview.com (documented on this page and supported/linked by Mark Coffman of KnowledgeGeek) and as of this writing, StudioReview has a low degree of compliance. I'm not suggesting that the owner/operator of KnowledgeGeek is able to accomplish this, but one wonders if it's possible to add compliance at an engine- or template-level for sites like this which are clearly copying Wikipedia content in huge quantities. Ds13 20:46, 2004 Mar 11 (UTC)
The remaining problems identified above seem to be addressed now. I would agree that they are largely compliant now. --Ds13 06:50, 2004 Mar 21 (UTC)

Sample http://www.lardydar.com/search/wiki/index.php?title=wikipedia:About

taken exactly from : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:About

Rating Unsure. The site seems to be such a good copy, it has the disclaimer footer on every page, just like Wikipedia. However, tiny details, such as using a link as a reference, and calling it "What is it with Lardydar Wiki?", when clearly that article has nothing to do with "Lardydar" Wiki. Also, they claim: "Lardydar Wiki® is a registered trademark of the Wikimedia Foundation, Inc.", but that is because they have included the footer seen on every Wikipedia page, and simply changed "Wikipedia" into "Lardylar Wiki". Even their Contact us page is identical, leading the user to contact Wikimedia, instead. May be a valid mirror, but I could not find links to Wikipedia. Searching for the article 'Wikipedia' Comes up with the article 'Lardylar Wiki' instead, but they pronounce "Lardylar Wiki" /ˌwikiˈpeːdi.ə/, so... What bothers me most is that they have the "Donate to" Link, on the left, exactly as Wikipedia, and it leads to their Paypal account. Perhaps this is completely legal and valid, but it appears that this site takes advantage of the "feel" of Wikipedia to solicit donations that do not go to the Wikimedia Foundation.

Details The current text in the Linda Montano article was mostly added in December 2009, apparently at the request of the subject herself (diff). The "Artist Bio" page at lindamontano.com is apparently a mirror, using (essentially) the same text after 2011, according to archive.org (archived 2011 version).

literaturemania.com[edit]

  • Site: literaturemania.com
  • Example: [24]
  • No attribution
  • No GFDL notice
  • No copyright information of any sort, just "ads" about "Discount Pet Supplies" and an offsite link
  • Refers to Wikipedia text section as "The Project Gutenberg Encyclopedia"
  • Appears to be some sort of Project Gutenberg and (non-compliant) Wikipedia mirror

liverpoolcityportal.co.uk[edit]

Now seems to comply, having used the suggested text I sent them through the form letter. Am going to ask them to see if the copyright notice can be clarified, though. Johnleemk | Talk 12:57, 7 February 2006 (UTC)
All is in order now. Johnleemk | Talk 17:07, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

LiveSeattle.com[edit]

LiveSeattle.com
URL http://www.liveseattle.com
Sample http://www.liveseattle.com/Default.aspx?tabid=5097
Rating Low/None
Details The sample page is a blatant grab of Wedgwood, Seattle, Washington (maybe not the current version, and they stripped the footnotes, but I immediately recognized User:GoDot's plodding prose.) - Jmabel
Contact info They link to a page at http://www.livecityguides.com/Home/ContactForm/tabid/454/Default.aspx. They are pushing it "Advertise with us", but I can't see why a different sort of message couldn't be left. - Jmabel
Actions Nothing so far

My guess given that they direct comments to a site with a more generic name is that they've done the same not just for other places in Seattle but for other cities. - Jmabel | Talk 00:18, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

We can class this is as 'well behaved' mirror. Phil from logicjungle proactively read the listing here and emailed me. I suggested some improvements to the wording of the article links, to give proper credit to wikipedia, which were quickly implemented.
If any further contact is necessary, it might as well go through me, or a I can provide a copy of the email conversation we had -- Nojer2 10:09, 28 Jan 2005 (UTC)
